Tel # (Off): 111-001-007   (130)
HEC approved PhD Supervisor

I did my PhD from University of the Punjab, Lahore under the supervision of Prof. Muhammad Sharif in the field of General Relativity and Cosmology. I have a good number of International publications in high impact factor journals with accumulative impact factor, 105. I am working on different topics in Cosmolgy and Astrophysics like Cosmic Inflation, Accelerating phenomena of the universe, On Dark Energy Models, Compact Stellar Objects, Thermodynamics etc. I am the reviewer of different international journals. In 2019, through a global competition, I got selected as a Young Scientist from Pakistan to attend 69th Lindau Nobel Laureates Meeting. In this event, 580 young scientists  were selected around the globe to meet with 39 Nobel Laureates. I felt like I had reached the Mount Olympus of science. In 2021, I got selected to attend 8th Heidelberg Laureate Forum. Since 2016, I have supervised 12 MS Students and 10 BS students.
