About Me

I graduated in Summer 2019 term and have started working as a Software Engineer. I am not going to maintain this webpage. Email address above will remain active.

I am a PhD Student in the Department of Computer Science at NYU where I am advised by Prof. Lakshmi Subramanian. My research interests are in mobile networking and mobile systems. As part of Open Networks Lab I am interested in networking problems that can help improve connectivity in urban and rural communities. Prior to NYU, I completed my Bachelor's degree from the FAST-NUCES and worked as a researcher at LUMS for 2 years with Dr. Umar Saif.
