About

I am currently a PhD graduate student at the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). My PhD research lies in the area of Computational Immunology. I received the B.Engg. degree in electronic engineering from NED University, Pakistan, in 2007 and the M.S. degree in electrical engineering from King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (KFUPM), Saudi Arabia, in 2011. I have worked as an Engineer-II (Analyst) at the Center for Communications and IT Research in the Research Institute of KFUPM. Prior to M.S., I have worked at the Imaging Payload Systems Lab of Satellite Research and Development Center in Karachi, Pakistan. My general research interests are statistical signal processing, computational bioinformatics, compressive sensing, computational neuroscience and data analytics.
