I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Science and Engineering at Habib University, Karachi, Pakistan. Before joining HU, I was working as a Research Assistant in the Embedded Systems Engineering (ESE) research group at the Technical University of Denmark. 

Earlier I obtained my PhD degree (Computer Science) from the Technical University of Denmark. During my doctoral studies, I worked on a future emerging technology in the domain of Design Automation for Synthetic Biology. One of the objectives of synthetic biology is to replace electronic-based medical devices with the systems-on-cell based on genetic circuits. My contribution in this field is to develop methods, algorithms and tools for the analysis, verification and synthesis of genetic logic circuits. Further details can be seen here.

I pursued my MS studies (Computer Engineering) in Chosun University in South Korea, where I was awarded a full financial support from Korean Global IT Talent program driven by the Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE), South Korea. During my MS studies in Korea, I worked as RA in Computer Systems Lab in the same institution. I worked on several different projects during this period and published journal and proceeding publications. I also invented a novel fault-tolerant FPGA architecture of which I now posses one international and two domestic patents. I also worked for a Korean company, Junsung E & R (Energy & Robots) Inc. and developed two commercial softwares for it. 

After obtaining my MS degree, I went to Saudi Arabia for an year and served as a Lecturer in the department of Computer Science at Umm Al Qura University, Makkah. Besides teaching there, I also served as a part-time researcher to develop embedded systems for smart waste bins. 

Earlier in 2010, I obtained my BE degree (Electronic Engineering) from NED University, Pakistan. During undergrad studies, I served as an Intern and as a Consultant in EONSIL Inc. for 2 years, where I worked on the development of Nand Flash based solid state drives and USB 3.0 MAC layer controller. 

Later after graduation, I joined Spot Pvt. Ltd. as a Digital Design Engineer and worked on embedded image acquisition, software development for car tracking, remote fuel monitoring, two-way TCP-IP communication etc. Before leaving for South Korea to pursue MS in the year 2010, I served EONSIL Inc. again for three months to work on the development of APIs for testing SSD NAND flash controller. 

I am grateful to Allah Almighty for all these achievements in such a young age of my life. My motivation of hard-working is based on the following quote:

"Even a fool knows that you can not reach the stars, 

but it does not stop a wise-man from trying."
