I am presently serving as Professor of Computer Science and Director of Quality Enhancement Cell at Sukkur IBA University. I teach Data Science, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Programming Courses at Undergraduate and Post Graduate levels. My research students and publications are also in these areas of AI. I am one of the pioneering members of deep-nlp.net research group which focuses on research related to natural language processing. The research group has produced multiple impact factor journal publications and also won different funding project for partnership in higher education. I am also serving as Project Manager on recently awarded five years' NORPART-CONNECT (2022-2026) which is a partnership between Sukkur IBA University and NTNU Norway for quality assurance in higher education. Alongside my computer science role, I have also been involved in Quality Assurance work at Sukkur IBA University as well as nationally. In the year 2012, I was given a challenging task of leading Institute's quality assurance department. In this capacity, I have learned many good practices both nationally and internationally. I am an HEC Reviewer - in this capacity, I have had a chance to visit many institutions of Pakistan to assess and learn their quality assurance mechanism. I have also worked on a five years' partnership between Sukkur IBA, Johnson County Community College and University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC) from 2014-19. I served as Project Director on this partnership project. Under this partnership, Sukkur IBA faculty with the support of the U.S State Department, learned best practices in Assessment, Distance Education, Early Childhood Education, Mathematics and English. Two of the most sustainable outcomes of the partnership are enhanced faculty capacity in these selected areas and establishment of Learning Centers at Sukkur IBA University which are now serving students with development needs. My work with USWDP of USAID as a consultant helped me understanding the model of community colleges in Kabul and it's role in workforce development. I worked with KPU faculty in Kabul to develop and assess Associate Degree in computer science. My diverse role with Sukkur IBA has enabled me to engage in writing multiple funding proposals to corporate and government. One such example is work with OGDCL on National Talent Hunt Program, under this partnership for serving community, Sukkur IBA with the support of OGDCL Ltd, selects 75 students from each province of Pakistan, admits them in an innovative concept of zero semester to work on students' English, ICT and Mathematics to prepare them for Higher Education. The project aim to reduce rural-urban divide and promote inclusive access to higher education. I am working on OGDC NTHP as Project Director. More than 1500 students have already benefited from the partnership which started in 2016 and presently running in full swing with more than 400 students have already graduated with bachelor degrees on fully funded scholarships and now serving in job market, initiated own start-ups or pursuing Masters/PhD degrees.
