After intermediate I completed my BS hons in statistics from University of Gujrat With research work in neuroimaging. I got my first research paper published in 2016 titled “Identification and classification of voxels of human brain for rewardless-related decision making using ANN technique” in a Journal bearing impact factor 5.573. I started my teaching career from 2015 joining superior college Gujrat as Lecturer statistics. I served 5 years in superior college Gujrat along with visiting faculty experience in Superior University, University Of Gujrat, University of Lahore Gujrat Campus and Govt. College of Commerce.

I published another article in 2018 entitled “Classification of Alzheimer’s Disease Stages: An Approach Using PCA-Based Algorithm” in a journal with impact factor 2.035. In Oct. 2021, I joined University of Lahore Gujrat Campus as Lecturer Biostatistics in department of Radiological Sciences and Medical Imaging. I have a true passion of working in medical imaging department because it is most Relevant with my research expertise.
