Rizal Mohd Nor received his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and a second major in B.Sc. in Computer Engineering from John Hopkins University, MD, USA. Upon completing his degree in 2000, he joined Answerthink Consulting in Philadelphia, PA, USA as an e-commerce consultant and later in 2001, joined Lucent Technologies, Reading, PA, USA as a test design engineer. Rizal returned to Malaysia in 2002 and joined DRB-Hicom IT as an IT consultant involved in various government IT projects like e-perolehan, open source competency centre, and open source software research. His experience in open source software later landed him a job in Mimos Berhad as a researcher in open source technologies and applications.
In 2004, Rizal obtained his first Master's degree in Business Administration (MBA) from IIUM, Malaysia. In 2009, he completed his second Master's in Computer Science (MSc) from Kent State University, USA. In 2012, Rizal completed his Ph.D in Computer Science from Kent State University. His research in self-stabilizing algorithms was recognized for the Best Student Paper Award presented in the 13th International Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems 2011, Grenoble, France.
Presently, Dr Rizal is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, Kulliyyah of ICT, International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM).


Area of Specialisation


  • ICT ~ Information, Computer And Communications Technology (ICT) ~ Distributed Computing ~ Other Distributed Computing n.e.c. - Designed algorithms in the context of asynchronous and synchronous message passing communication systems. Such environments are important for distributed computing in applications of peer-to-peer systems, parallel computing, grid-computing, cloud services and the likes. Such systems requires algorithms that are self-stabilizing, fault-tolerant, reliable and secure.
  • ICT ~ Information, Computer And Communications Technology (ICT) ~ Communication ~ Mobile Network Technology - Mobile computing have a lot of potentials in smart environments. As the numbers of its use increases, the future of ambient computing is becoming a realization. Thus, research in the area of mobile applications, infrastructure, communication networks, communication algorithms, energy harvesting algorithms, context-aware applications, sensor networks are necessary.
