I graduated as a Biomedical Engineer (MSc) and Mechanical Engineer (BSc) from one of the most prestigious university of Pakistan (NUST). I later worked at the same institute as Junior Lecturer (Lab Engineer) and then managed Ed-tech Entrepreneurship program in the first global accelerator of Pakistan. Previously, I have worked on design, development and control of medical robots, mobile, aerial and humanoid robots. This experience equipped me with the skills of real-time signal processing (BCI, Neurofeedback), advanced programming (C, C++, MATLAB, Python), rapid prototyping (3D printing, FDM), modelling (CAD ,CAM) and simulation (FEM, CFD). Meanwhile, I also gained careful measurement and analytical skills, good attention to detail, a good eye for design, the creative and technical ability to turn designs into products and importantly communication and teamworking skills. Currently, as a doctoral candidate, at the Dr. Til Ole Bergmann’s Neurostimulation research group, I am investigating function of neuronal oscillations of human brain during awake and sleep conditions. My research also focuses on spindles in NREM sleep and theta waves in REM sleep to investigate memory consolidation by applying simultaneous real-time EEG triggered TMS.
