I'm a fourth year PhD student at University of California, Los Angeles Computer Science Department where I'm advised by Miryung Kim. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) SBASSE, Pakistan , where I was mentored by Fareed Zaffar. Before that I was a GCSE A Level student at Lahore Grammar School.
My research interests lie at the intersection of software engineering and big data systems. Specifically, I am interested in supporting interactive debugging in big data processing frameworks and providing efficient ways to perform automated fault localization in big data applications.
Miryung and I demonstrated our tool BigSift at Spark Summit 2018
I received a gold medal at ACM Student Research Competition at ICSE 2018
