Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Engineering

Affiliation: NYU Abu Dhabi


Hamidou Tembine  is an assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering  at New York University Abu Dhabi  since 2014. His main research interests are game theory and learning. In 2014, Tembine received the IEEE ComSoc Outstanding Young Researcher Award for his promising research activities for the benefit of the society. He was the recipient of 5 best paper awards in the applications of game theory. Tembine is a prolific researcher and holds several scientific publications including magazines, letters, journals and conferences. He is author of the book on “distributed strategic learning for engineers “ (published at CRC Press, Taylor & Francis 2012) which received the book award 2014 in the category of science and engineering, and co-author of the book “Game Theory and Learning in Wireless Networks” (Elsevier Academic Press). Tembine has been co-organizer of several scientific meetings on game theory in networking, wireless communications and smart energy systems.   He is a senior member of IEEE.

Tembine graduated in applied mathematics from Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau, France) in 2006 and received his Ph.D. degree in computer science from INRIA and University of Avignon in 2009. He was previously a faculty member  at Ecole Superieure d'Electricite, France.
