He has earned his Doctorate degree from Université Paris 6 Jussieu, France, under the co-supervision of Prof. Guy Pujolle and Dr. James W. Roberts at France Telecom Research Labs where he did all his PhD research within the "high speed networks teletraffic research group".

Professor Bensaou's research interests are diverse but lie primarily in the area of resource allocation, resource sharing, quality of service and teletraffic in network systems, including wireless local- and wide-area networks, information-centric networks, data centre networks, software-defined networks and the Internet at large. He has supervised 13 PhD theses and about 20 MPhil/MEng theses in these areas. He is a Senior member of IEEE and a member of ACM.
