Welcome to my home page!

I am a PhD student at the AASS Cognitive Robotic Systems Laboratory. I was born in Quetta, Pakistan in 1987. After completing my Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from BUITEMS, I moved to Sweden to continue my studies and completed my master's degree in Robotics and Intelligent Systems from the University of Örebro. Before starting my PhD, I worked in the Gasbot project as a research intern at the same University.

My research interests includes stigmergic algorithms for mobile robot, mobile robot navigation, mobile robot olfaction and swarm robotics. In general my research revolves around robotics.
