I am an Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, University of Adelaide. I migrated to Australia to join the University of Adelaide in 2007 and became an Australian citizen in 2012. Before receiving my PhD in 2006 I worked for several years in the area of lasers and optics in Pakistan. During 2006-2007 I was with the National University of Sciences & Technology, Pakistan, and with the Kochi University of Technology, Japan. During 2007-2012 I was with the University of Adelaide on a prestigious research fellowship from the Australian Research Council. During 2013-2014 I accepted a fixed-term academic position at the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, Saudi Arabia. I returned to the University of Adelaide in mid-2014. My CV is at the link below.
I hold a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Hull, UK, and a BSc (Hons) in Physics from the University of Sheffield, UK.
Awards & Achievements
I was a tutor for Electronics Systems (Level 1), Electronics Circuits M (Level 2), and Electronics (Level 2) in first semester 2016; a guest lecturer for Avionics Sensors & Systems (Level4) in second semester 2014; and a guest lecturer for Communications (Level 4) in first semester 2012, all at the School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, University of Adelaide. Between Jan 2013 and May 2014, while being with the King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, Saudi Arabia, I taught Methods of Applied Mathematics (Level 3) four times and Elements of Differential Equations (Level 2) twice. While being with the National University of Sciences & Technology, Pakistan, during July-Nov 2006, I taught Mathematical Methods of Quantum Mechanics (Level 4).
I have interdisciplinary research interests. Most of my published research is in the growing research area of quantum game theory. I have also published in the areas of geometric algebra, quantum computation/information, electromagnetics, networks, memristors, and mathematical modelling. My recent research interests include games of asymmetric information, developing an improved understanding of cancer-immune dynamics using game theory, developing game theoretical models of immigration and assimilation, and models of quantum games without Hilbert space.
