I got opportunity to serve National Space Agency (SUPARCO) for 21 years and remained active member/head of research groups of projects of national importance related to instrumentation, control and communication engineering. I contributed in BADR-1 project and worked as Head of Satellite Development Division during design, development, integration and testing of BADR-2 microsatellite.

As a team leader I have performed project monitoring, management and execution. Having a vast R&D experience in space technology I switched toward academia and joined Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology and then National University of Sciences & Technology in 2002. I have been imparting engineering education and dealt student and faculty affairs, academic management & curriculum development/revision as HOD Undergraduate Program (Electronic and Power Engineering) for 11 years. Presently, I am member of HEC National Curriculum Development & Revision Committee (NCDRC) for telecommunication engineering.

I am also member of Board of Studies, Faculty Board of Studies at NUST-PNEC and other Universities. I am member of various councils, bodies, societies, committees at universities and national/international level. I have attended/participated in more than 60 conferences/seminars/symposiums. I have experience of organizing national and international conferences/events. I am member of journal editorial board and member technical/organizing committee for conferences/symposium/seminar.  I am author of 25 technical and educational national/international publications.
