I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Lahore University of Management Sciences, Lahore, Pakistan. I am also a Co-Director of Smart Data, Systems and Applications Lab at LUMS.

Previously, I was with the Department of Electrical Engineering, at University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore as an Assistant Professor. Prior to that, I was a Research Fellow with the Research School of Engineering, College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS), The Australian National University (ANU), where I was also a member of Applied Signal Processing group. I also worked at Tetra Pak as Project Engineer from 2008 to 2010.
