Education:
Fulbright PostDoc – Distributed Systems – The University of Chicago, United States (2013)

I am a Fulbright visiting scholar at The University of Chicago, doing postdoc in Green Computing for Clouds. I am on long leave from  school of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (SEECS) -a constituent college of National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST).  My area of interest lies in Grid and cloud computing and virtualization. I am teaching PG and UG courses in Advanced Distributed Computing, Operating Systems and Programming Languages. I am currently supervising students in various research and development projects in Cloud computing, P2P, Grid computing and Performance Testing.
