Post : Research Associate (in Collaboration with Prof. Hisham Sati, CQTS)

Currently a Postdoctoral Associate at the Center for Quantum and Topological Systems at NYU Abu Dhabi, I embarked on my physics journey at “Quaid-i-Azam University”, Islamabad, earning my Master’s and M.Phil with a focus on “Quantum Entanglement in Graphene”. My scholarly path led me to the United Arab Emirates University, where I distinguished myself as the inaugural PhD graduate in “Theoretical Physics”, specializing in “Non-linear Dynamics”. My Doctoral research, centered around pioneering all-optical data communication through solitons in waveguide arrays, earned international acclaim, resulting in numerous publications and presentations.

Recognized by the UAE with the prestigious Golden Visa for my exceptional contributions to the field, I have made significant strides in both theoretical and practical physics applications. Before joining NYU Abu Dhabi, I was engaged in the “Non-linear Dynamics” research at Khalifa University. My current collaborations, notably with TUM Germany, are focused on the forefront of quantum sensing technologies. I have initiated research into Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) methods to advance the field's understanding and application of quantum sensing. In addition, I have been delving into the exploration of Nitrogen-Vacancy (NV) centers as promising avenues for quantum sensing applications.

In my current role, I am dedicated towards nurturing the next generation of scientists. This includes providing specialized training on the SpinQ quantum desktop facility within our lab, a tool that offers hands-on experience with quantum computing principles. I actively participates in mentorship programs such as the NYUAD Hackathon for Social Good and lead quantum computing workshops for students across various educational levels. My commitment to outreach is driven by a desire to ignite a passion for quantum physics in young minds, offering them direct, tangible interactions with the field's cutting-edge technologies.
