Biography

I received my BS degree in Information Technology (BIT) in 2008 from the University of Peshawar, KPK, Pakistan. I was awarded fellowship from the Department of Computer Science, CCIS, King Saud University as Researcher Assistant since February 2009 till December 2012 where I worked in Visual Computing Lab (VCL) and completed my MS(CS) degree focusing on category-based feature extraction/selection for face recognition. Beside thesis, I also worked on other research projects. I was awarded full Ph.D. scholarship by the University of Milan, Italy in 2013. I joined CVPR Lab in the University of Naples Parthenope under the supervision of Prof. Alfredo Petrosino and started working on designing of deep neural network architectures. My research mainly focuses on imposing pyramidal structures in NN for reducing the number of parameters and enhancing performance. During my Ph.D., I received the opportunity to work as a visiting researcher at CVGL Lab Stanford in 2015. Where I worked under the supervision of Prof. Silvio Savarese and Dr. Amir Zamir. In addition, I had the chance to attend several conferences, workshops, and deep learning summer schools. I was an IEEE student member as well as a member of GIRPR (Gruppo Italiano Ricercatori in Pattern Recognition). Previously, I was a member of the Saudi Computer Society.
