Boston University
PhD student
United States
Doing PhD in FPGA/CPU systems for CLOUD servers/ IOT devices etc, at Boston University USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ (2021 - *)

Current Work:

Currently I am working on FGPA hardware OS for FPGAs in clouds/IOT and high performance computing/networking in clouds, including heterogeneous FPGA/CPU(softcore or hard processor) systems.

Previous Experience:

I have Research in Autonomous Vehicles (AV) SafetyAssurance (made SitutationCoverage based V&V framework in Carla software with Deep Learning object detection implemented in the simulation using Python for AVs) at University of York UK πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ (2019 - 2021)

Masters in Robotics πŸ€– with a high impact factor and cited paper on RRT* PathPlanning for autonomous vehicles from NUST University PakistanπŸ‡΅πŸ‡° (2015 - 2018)

Worked on FPGAs and Embedded systems at Advance Engineering Research Org πŸ‡΅πŸ‡° (2016 - 2019)

I have worked on Audio signal processing as well such as noise cancellation algorithms, beamforming algorithms for recording sounds and noise cancellation and deepLearning based Trigger word detection πŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸŽ΅πŸŽ§πŸ‘‚

Fields of Engineering experience:

I have had experience in a few different fields of engineering/computers science. I have previously worked on safety assurance of autonomous vehicles i.e self-driving cars (CARLA AV simulator, Python, Tensorflow, Pytorch Deeplearning), robotics including Path-Planning (RRT* etc), Machine Learning, Controls and Automation, Hardware Designing and Embedded Systems (GPUs, DSPs, Micro-controller, SOC, FPGA), and Safety Assurance of Critical Systems.
