He is a research fellow at Institute of Molecular Sciences and Bioinformatics, Lahore, since October 2008. He has published 16 research papers in different peer reviewed journals and serving as an editorial board member of repute. After the establishment of the Board of Members of the Institute of Molecular Sciences and Bioinformatics, he was selected the Secretary General of the institute. He joined the IMSB as software developer and now has been promoted on the post of senior software application engineer. He is also in the visiting faculty of the GC University Lahore. He received the degree of the B.Sc. (Math A, B and Physics) and M.Sc. (Computational Physics) from the University of the Punjab in 2005 and 2008 respectively. He recently completed his M. Phil in Applied Physics from GC University, Lahore.

Being as the Secretary General, he is responsible to conduct, administrate and control every activity of the institute. As senior software application engineer, he is responsible to develop algorithms, models and software applications for the problems under consideration.

Being as computational scientist, I do have experience to work in different fields of theoretical sciences. Computational science is one of the most growing field in every discipline of modern eras to solve complex phenomenon by using advance computing techniques. My core area of inserts are, quantum computing.
My research is in the field of quantum theory, focusing particularly on the interactions of atoms and radiation, and the behavior of ultra-cold atomic gases. These are major areas in contemporary Physics, providing a fundamental understanding of how the world works on a microscopic scale, and giving rise to important technological applications.
My early work spanned a range of topics including laser physics, nonlinear optics, quantum optics, and atomic collisional processes. In more recent years, my focus has shifted to ultra-cold atoms, a field which came into prominence with the first experimental realization of a Bose-Einstein condensate in the mid 1990s. With my colleagues, I have been involved in the development and application of a practical formalism for calculating and understanding the behavior of these complex systems. Some particular contributions have been in the areas of: condensate formation; theory of the atom laser; vortex dynamics in condensates; coherent atom optics; and the effect of thermal fluctuations on condensate dynamics.
