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

I did my Ph.D. at the University of 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 more than 200 accumulative impact factor. I am working on different topics in cosmology and Astrophysics like Cosmic Inflation, Accelerating universe, Dark Energy Models, Compact Stellar Objects, Thermodynamics, etc. I am a reviewer of different international journals. In 2019, through a global competition, I got selected as a Young Scientist from Pakistan to attend the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureates Meeting. In this event, 580 young scientists were selected from 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 the 8th Heidelberg Laureate Forum. From 300 worldwide applicants, I was among 27 selected candidates to attend International Training on Open Science and SDGs 2023 from 28 August to 8 September 2023 organized by the Computer Network Information Center (CNIC), Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), Beijing, China. Since 2016, I supervised 20 MS Students and 17 BS students. 3 Ph.D. and 5 MS students are registered.
