I have been associated with Institute of Space Technology (IST), Pakistan since its inception in 2002.

Since then, I have been involved in various research ventures in the field of Image Processing, Pattern Recognition and Computer Vision. I am one of the founding members of Pakistan Pattern Recognition Society (PPRS). I am also the project manager of the small satellite CubeSat program of IST, the ICUBE. The first cubeSat satellite of this project (ICUBE-1) was successfully launched in November 2013. Apart from that, I am the editor of Journal of Space Technology which is an HEC recognized annual peer-reviewed journal. I am also contributing as reviewer and committee member for various international journals and conferences.
