Biography

I am a Lecturer-above-the-bar at School of Computer Science. I received my PhD from  Computer Science Department of Syed Baber Ali School of Science and Engineering (LUMS), under the supervision of Professor Dr. Asim Karim. My PhD Thesis is titled: Semantic Smoothing Strategies for Improved Text Classification and Clustering.  I am interested in data mining and machine learning algorithms and applications.
I have worked as a 
Post Doctoral Researcher at Insight Centre for Data Analytics, University of Galway. I was working at Unit for Linguistic Data (ULD) unit at DSI. ULD is concerned with the creation, improvement, and maintenance of linguistic data (also known as language resources) through a variety of methods. The term linguistic data refers to a range of data types that are of use to researchers in linguistics and natural language processing (NLP). Principally, linguistic data can be split into four major categories: firstly, lexical data contains descriptions of words and their meanings, syntax, and relations; secondly, corpora consist of collections of texts made for a particular purpose; thirdly, language descriptions document typological properties of language to enable comparative studies; and finally, metadata about language resources and their availability.
Other than Knowledge Graphs and Linked Open Data, I am doing research in text categorisation and clustering, text summarisation, sentiment analysis, edge computing, and blockchain
Please feel free to contact me if you want to initiate research collaboration.
