I am currently carrying out a PhD at Graduate School of Computer and Information Science (Nova Southeastern University). My researches are focused on Measuring Interest in Outliers with Explanation Facility using Bayesian Belief Networks. I am working on developing an algorithm to rank outliers using rare-class sensitivity of probabilistic interestingness measures with Bayesian belief networks as background knowledge.

Besides my PhD, I am work as a Sr. Software Architect at a financial institution.

Previously, I received BS in Computer Science from University of Karachi, and MS Computer Science from Nova Southeastern University. 

As a Sr. System Architect / Technical Lead for a financial institution, I develop SOA based middle-tier architectures, distributed systems, and web-applications using Microsoft technologies.  I am a Microsoft Certified Trainer holding several technical certifications, including MCSD, MCPD (Enterprise Developer) and SCJP-II. I am a technical editor for "Microsoft Windows Server AppFabric Cookbook" and also taught Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) courses at the University of California at San Diego, and regularly presents at local code camps and user groups. I am actively involved in the .NET community as co-founder and president of the of San Gabriel Valley .NET Developers group.
