I am currently working as a Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist in a public sector education reforms project, PMIU-PESRP. As part of my work, I oversee the data collection process for public sector schools across the province of Punjab, which serve around 12 million students.

I have obtained my PhD from the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Washington and a Fulbright student. My dissertation research is in the area of machine learning with a focus on natural language processing with the TIAL group. I also have experience working in the domain of computer networks and wireless communications. My current research interests include application of natural language processing towards automating student learning evaluation for K-12 STEM education, leveraging student outcomes data to improve policy making and implementation processes.

I was featured as a notable woman in STEM by Washington STEM.

I was awarded the UW Husky 100 and nominated for Celebrate: UW Women in 2019 & 2020, and Homecoming Scholar at UW in 2019.
