Currently I am an Assistant Professor at Computer Science department at FAST National University Lahore and Director of Liberty Lab for Robotics and Embedded Systems.


Before this, I was living in the city of Stuttgart doing a Post-doc at the Machine Learning and Robotics (MLR) group at the University of Stuttgart, Germany.

I completed my PhD from University of Tuebingen, Germany, in the Robotics Research Group. My work was mostly on Visual Terrain Classification onboard wheeled and flying robots. Tuebingen is a small university town. However the University of Tuebingen is very famous in medical and social sciences. Recently, it achieved the status of one of the elite universities for the next 5 years starting from 2012.


Previously, I was at Kaiserslautern University of Technology Germany for a few years involved in teaching and research at Robotics and AI Group and Image Understanding and Pattern Recognition (IUPR) Group at DFKI. Kaiserslautern city is not so big but is beautiful and famous for football. Most of the players in the world cup winning team (inc. captain) of Germany were from my city. It hosted five matches of the football World Cup 2006.


I did BS computer science from FAST - National University of Computer & Emerging Sciences, Lahore, Pakistan. Then i did MS in Computer Science with specialization in "Artificial Intelligence" from the same university.
