2012/09 - 2018/08 , I have worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science, National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences (NUCES).

2008/08 - 2010/08 , I was a computer engineer at the Faculty Of Computer Sciences and Engineering, Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology (GIKI).

Industrial Experience

2018/04 - 2023/01 , I was a Research Scientist with Data61, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

2014/05 - 2018/04 , I have also worked with National ICT Australia (NICTA), Australia, on various projects.

2012/01 - 2012/08 , I worked on a medical-related project with Toshiba Medical Visualization Systems Europe (TMVSE), Scotland.

2011/05 - 2011/08 , Similarly, I simulated sonar sensors for transparent object detection for path planning in Pal Robotics, Barcelona, Spain.

2007/05 - 2007/08 , I worked with Pakistan Telecommunication Limited (PTCL) during my undergraduate.


2014/05 - 2018/04 , I hold a PhD from the Australian National University, where I studied at the College of Engineering & Computer Science. I conducted doctoral research within the Computer Vision Research Group (CVRG) at Data61 (previously known as NICTA), CSIRO.

2010/09 - 2012/08 , Prior to my PhD, I pursued a Master's degree in Computer Vision and Robotics (Vibot) through a collaborative program involving the Heriot-Watt University, the University of Girona and the University of Bourgogne.

2004/09 - 2008/08 , My academic journey began with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Systems Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Peshawar.

Open Positions:

I am looking for PhD students and Master students who want to conduct research and develop advanced deep learning algorithms for image and video enhancement and restoration, 3D Point Clouds, computational imaging, computer vision and Machine learning applications to join Ph.D. and Masters at ICS, KFUPM. I am also recruiting Research Associates and Final Year Project students.
