Mr. Sajid Ibrahim Hashmi
Assistant Professor, Computer Science
Area of Interest: Software Design and Architecture, Distributed Software Development, Software Engineering Management
Tel # (Off): 111-001-007  


I have been into software engineering for quite some years now and have held research, industry, and teaching positions at various institutions and research groups. I am mainly interested in applying SE principles and processes for development of effective tools and efficient techniques. More specifically, my areas of interest include but are not limited to Global Software Development, Software Architecture, Empirical Methods in Software Engineering, Software Services, and Health Informatics.

I am open to supervising challenging final year projects and mutually beneficial research collaborations. However, those anticipate working with me are advised to bring up their ideas in black and white for more fruitful input from my side.

I am not a social-media enthusiast. However, my Twitter, Linkedin, and Google Scholar do exist. In my other life, I like reading different types of literature, travel, visit new places and observe diverse cultures. Also like to walk out on chilly evenings and contemplate things in and around me. At times relish drinking cappuccino with some brownies.

Some of my teaching resources can be found at YouTube.
