  • Reader (Electronic & Nanoscale Engineering)

Biography

I did BSc in Electrical Engineering from UET Lahore, Pakistan in 1999. From 1999 to 2006 I served as Embedded System Designer in Advance Engineering and Research Organization (AERO), Pakistan.

In pursuit of higher education and excellence, I ventured to France from 2007 to 2011, where I earned my M.S. in Embedded Systems from the Université de Nice Sophia Antipolis and a Ph.D. on Unified Turbo Receivers from Université de Bretagne Sud. During my time in France, I remained engaged with Eurecom and Telecom Bretagne  where my research was focused on proposing flexible and high-throughput components for the physical layer of wireless communication systems.

Returning to Pakistan in 2011, I continued to contribute significantly, working as a Systems Engineer at AERO and concurrently serving as a visiting faculty member at Bahria University, Islamabad. In 2016, I became a full-time faculty member at Bahria University, dedicating my expertise to research areas such as hardware architectures for 5G communication waveforms, channel emulators, elliptic curve and ultra-lightweight cryptographic algorithms, and high-speed intrusion detection systems.

My leadership at the National Center for Cyber Security, where I led the hardware group in the Cyber Reconnaissance and Combat (CRC) Lab, highlights my commitment to cutting-edge research. My hands-on experience with Hardware Description Languages and realization of large-scale digital systems on FPGA further showcase my technical prowess.

From October 2023, I am part of Electronic & Nanoscale Engineering (ENE) Division of James Watt School of Engineering, University of Glasgow. 

Research interests

Hardware architecture for Qubit Control, signal processing implementation of waveforms and Intelligent Reflecting Surfaces (IRS) for 6G communication, high speed Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC).
