My bachelors degree is from CIIT Islamabad in 2007. In 2008, I proceeded to Cambridge University, UK for masters in 2008 under Cambridge Commonwealth shared scholarship and Noon educational foundation scholarship. My masters studies were mostly scattered around the field of fluid dynamics. I did my PhD from Imperial College London under CIIT Faculty development program in 2016 under the kind supervision of Dr. Vahid Shahrezaei. My thesis focused on stochastic sensity analysis and specificity analysis of biochemical networks.
