About me
I have more than 15 years of combined experience in academia and industry. I have worked at leading roles in addition to research and teaching roles. This includes teaching at UNC Charlotte (USA) as Graduate Assistant during my PhD; NUST (Pakistan); University of Jeddah and currently at State University of New York at Fredonia. I have taught courses in computer science computer networks, software defined networks and programming both at graduate and the undergraduate level.

I have worked in the industry on projects that deal with large scale data such as eBanking applications for renowned Banks. In my most recent industry project I worked on data migration for a large bank in US. In the past I lead a team that developed and maintained eBanking system for Union Bank Limited (now Standard Chartered Bank).
