I received an MSc in Vision and Robotics (VIBOT) in 2011, an Erasmus Mundus Masters programme from three Universities: Heriot-Watt University (UK), University of Girona (Spain) and University of Burgundy (France); I completed my MSc VIBOT thesis at Imperial College London. I also received an MSc in Electrical Engineering in 2007 and a BE degree in Mechatronics Engineering in 2005 from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST), Pakistan. Since January 2012, I have been a research student under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Cavallaro at Queen Mary University of London. My research interests include multimodal information filtering and multi-camera synchronization.
