I hold a Ph.D. from the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, specializing in the exciting field of aerial robotics and controls. Prior to that, I pursued my MASc degree in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the same esteemed university, focusing on controls and robotics. My academic journey began with a Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree in Mechatronics Engineering from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST).
Before joining NJIT, I gained valuable experience as a postdoctoral research scientist at the University of California at Santa Cruz and KAUST. My postdoctoral research journey also included a position at the University of Toronto, with a cross-appointment at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Queens University in Canada, where I had the privilege of working under the guidance of Professor Andrew Lewis. Additionally, I was part of SDCN, a state-of-the-art drone lab at York University, Canada.
