I'm a third 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 broadly span Software Engineering, Distributed Systems and Data Science. Specifically, I am working towards establishing a new domain of big data debugging by designing techniques to perform real time automated debugging on in-memory big data processing frameworks.
