I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at the Rochester Institute of Technology. My research focuses on building mobile systems that enable humans and machines like self-driving cars, and drones to perceive, and understand the world better.

I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Southern California where I was advised by Prof. Ramesh Govindan. Before that, I received the Presidential Medal, and the University Gold Medal for my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology, Peshawar.

I am looking for motivated and hardworking students to join my group. If you are interested in working with me and have read some of my papers, please send me an email.
