Biography

Dr. Malalla has a B.Sc. (1994) in Mathematics from University of Bahrain, and a Master (1997) in Pure Mathematics from McGill University, Montreal, Canada. In 2004, he received his Ph.D. in Probabilistic Analysis of Algorithms from McGill University. He joined Ahlia University in 2004 and have held various academic positions: Chairperson of IT Department (2008-2011), Acting Chairperson of Computer Engineering Department (2012), Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Research (2012-2014), President Assistant for University Compliance (2015-2017), Chairperson of the Master Program in Engineering Management offered by the George Washington University and hosted at Ahlia University (2012-2017), and currently he is an active member in the Mathematical Sciences, Languages and General Studies Department in the College of Arts and Science.  He developed many university policies, processes and procedures that play vital rules in Ahlia University Quality Management System. He helped to prepare for many quality reviews conducted by the Bahraini Education and Training Quality Authority (BQA) at Ahlia University. He contributed significantly to many Institutional and Program Reviews including Programs-Within-College-Reviews conducted by BQA as well as Institutional Listing, Qualification Placement and Alignment of Foreign Qualifications applications submitted to the National Qualification Framework (NQF) by Ahlia University. Furthermore, Dr. Malalla participated in many institutional and program reviews conducted by BQA for other national HEIs in Bahrain. He worked with BQA as an external reviewer for IT and Computer Science Programs and as a member of many Evaluation Panels for institutional listing and qualification placement in the NQF.

 

Dr. Malalla also worked previously (2005-2008) as an Assistant Professor in the Information and Computer Sciences Department at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, and lately (in 2018 & 2019) as a Visiting Associate Professor of Engineering and Applied Science teaching and supervising graduate students in the Online and Off-campus Programs in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at the George Washington University, USA. His research interest includes probabilistic analysis of algorithms and data structures, randomized algorithms, algorithms with predictions, random data structures, allocation processes, and load balancing. He has collaborated with international authors and published many papers in well-respected refereed conferences and journals such as SIAM Journal on Computing and SIAM Journal on Discrete Mathematics. He supervised and examined tens of research projects, praxes and dissertations of M.Sc., D.Eng. and Ph.D. students in interdisciplinary fields such as Computer Science, IT, Engineering Management and System Engineering in various universities including Ahlia University, KFUPM and GWU. Dr. Malalla is an active member of the Association for Computing Machinery since 2005 and participated in the review of many journal and conference papers.

Supervision

Dr. Malalla has supervised many students conducting undergraduate senior projects and master dissertations in computer science and information technology at Ahlia University and KFUPM. He has also supervised and examined tens of research projects, praxes and dissertations of M.Sc., D.Eng. and Ph.D. students in the Department of Engineering Management and System Engineering at the George Washington University, USA.
