Muhammad Babar Rasheed, PhD., SMIEEE

Associate Professor & Marie Curie Individual Fellow

About Me

Babar obtained his Ph. D. degree from COMSATS University Islamabad (CUI), Pakistan in 2017 with a thesis entitled “User comfort aware energy management system for smart homes”. During the last year of his Doctoral degree, he was awarded a grant under the “International Research Support Initiative Program (IRSIP)” of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan to undertake a joint research project at Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, USA (2016-2017). During this stay, Dr. Babar worked on a small industrial project entitled “the supply side of energy water-nexus”. After the award of the Ph. D. degree, Babar joined The University of Lahore (UOL) as an Assistant Professor of Engineering and taught graduate and undergraduate courses. Then he has been awarded a Post-Doctoral fellowship at King Abdulaziz University (KAU), Saudi Arabia where he worked on different projects related to smart grid and energy management. After that, Dr. Babar has been awarded a Post-Doctoral fellowship at Durham University, United Kingdom (U.K) where he worked on Smart Grid and heuristic optimization algorithms. In 2020, the UOL has promoted him to the rank of Associate Professor based on his performance and achievements. In the meantime, Babar remained actively involved in research and teaching-related activities and published more than 40 peer-reviewed articles in well reputed international journals and conferences. Babar also supervised more than 10 students in their final year projects and theses, while supervising 2 doctoral students in engineering and computer science disciplines. His research interests include operations research, optimization algorithms, smart grids, electric vehicles, demand response, etc. Dr. Babar is also an active reviewer of many esteemed journals including IEEE, Elsevier, Wiley, Springer, IET, Taylor & Francis, etc. Currently, he is working on developing efficient algorithms for managing energy demand as a GET-COFUND Marie Curie Fellow at UAH.
