I am presently enjoying my research activities in Leeds University Business School with special emphasis on Decision Making with and without Data. My education journey still continues that started long time ago in 1970s (when I was born, or perhaps, even before that). I learnt most of my engineering skills from NUST College of E&ME that prepared me for the professional career in Mathtech, then Enabling Technologies, then Protel Networks, then FJWU, and then in CIIT. Some of the interesting areas, where I learnt and practised my skills, are object-oriented programming, data analysis and visualization, discrete event simulation, real-time embedded systems, digital image processing, graphical user interface design, and web development. I have used these skills for seismic data processing, telecom call detail records processing and profiling, asterisk call queues management, device drivers development, and developing decision support systems. During my search for global optimum, I started exploring the field of decision science that somehow changed my direction from "hardcore" engineering systems to the development of decision support systems and business intelligence. During my PhD research, I developed a priority estimation tool (PriEsT) that is now available as open-source multi-criteria decision support software ( Nowadays, I am genuinely interested in two things i.e. data and decisions. Although I still have some bias towards C++ (due to historical reasons), most of my time is spent developing algorithms and tools in Java, or other Java-based platforms i.e. KNIME and AnyLogic. Feel free to contact me if you can teach me any of these, or would like to have a discussion.
