Resume



I am a MS student at Tufts University, advised by Dr. Fahad Dogar. My interests are in the field of computer networks and distributed systems. Specifically data center networking, cloud computing and wide-area communication. More recently I also developed an intense curiosity for cloud robotics.

Previously I completed my undergraduate from the School of Science and Engineering, LUMS, Pakistan. There I worked in NSG under Dr. Ihsan Ayyub Qazi.
