I completed a Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering from the National University of Sciences & Technology (NUST) in 2005. In 2009 I received an MSc in Vision and Robotics (VIBOT), a joint Masters program in three European universities: Heriot-Watt University, University of Girona and University of Burgundy. I worked for four months (May - August 2010) at Medicsight PLC in London as Scientific R&D Intern on the analysis of haustral folds (part of human colon anatomy) imaged with Computed Tomography (CT). Since September 2010, I have been working at Queen Mary University of London under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Cavallaro first as a Research Assistant (September to December 2010) and then as a Research Student (January 2011 to date). My research interests include multi-camera environment learning, performance evaluation of video tracking and shape analysis.
