I am a Water Resources Engineer, currently working as an Assistant Professor in School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Islamabad, Pakistan. My research mainly focus on climate change impact assessment on hydrological process of high-altitude snow and glacier covered regions, and agricultural water resources management to changing climate with the integration of GIS and remote sensing tools. This also reflected in my more than 17 published research articles in different peer-reviewed international journals and completed research/consultancy projects as a principle investigator or core team member, funded by various agencies such as Higher Education Commission (HEC), of Pakistan, National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), Asian Development Bank (ADB), World Bank and University of Applied Sciences, Zurich, Switzerland. I have worked extensively in high-altitude regions of Karakorum, Himalayas and Hindukush.
