I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science from City University of Hong Kong, MS (Software Engineering) from City University of Science and Information Technology, Peshawar, Pakistan and MSc (Computer Science) from Gomal University, DIK, Pakistan.

I am currently working as an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science and Software Engineering Department, School of Engineering, Penn State University Behrend, Erie, PA, USA. Before Joining PSU, I have worked as a Pro temp (NTTF) at the Computer and Information Science Department, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon, USA. Prior to this, I was working as an Assistant Professor in COMSATS University, Islamabad. I have worked as course chair and acting Director Administration at Namal College, Mianwali an affiliated College of University of Bradford, UK. Moreover, I have worked as a faculty member of University of Peshawar, Center of Applied Epistemics, and CECOS University. I have worked as programmer with SRDC, British Council, Peshawar, Pakistan. I am a research collaborator at SERC, MID Lab, Smart Intelligence team, SERC-KUST, SE-CU (HK) team, SE-NUAA (CN) from September 2014 to date.
Moreover, As an editorial staff member, i am providing volunteer services to numerous reputed journals and conferences such as IET Software, KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems, Journal of Information and Knowledge Management, EASE and so on.

My current research focus is to explore the software engineering practices for High Performance Computing (HPC) software packages and applications to improve their process and benchmark their quality levels, to automate the document generation for open-source software, and to explore the implications of Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big data analysis and soft computing technique in analysis and design of softwares.

I love to do interdisciplinary research in the domain of Software Engineering, healthcare system, Machine Learning, Text mining and Social network analysis.
