I am a PhD student in Dynamic Distributed Decentralized Systems (D3S ) group, a
cross-institutional research group of University of Trento and Bruno Kessler
Foundation. Under the supervision of Dr. Amy Murphy, I am researching
energy efficiency for Wireless Sensor Networks and Cyber Physical Systems using
cross-layer adaptive protocols. I am currently involved in T.R.I.T.on and ACube
projects. Before joining the doctoral program, I completed my MS (Computer
Science) in 2008 with a National Management Foundation Gold Medal for securing the top
position in the class at Lahore University of Management Sciences, Pakistan. I
received my BS from National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences,
Pakistan in 2004.
