As you can see in the enclosed resume, I have a strong academic background in the Mechanical Engineering field combined with (05) years of industrial/research experience as Manager Technical and (03) years post-PhD teaching experience as an Assistant Professor at the university level. My MS and Ph.D. work in Finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamic, respectively, allowed me to further develop and strengthen my technical skills and transfer the knowledge to the new generation. In the teaching line, I have taught a number of courses at the undergraduate level which includes Fluid Mechanics-I and Fluid Mechanics-II, Mechanical Vibration, Mechanics of Materials, Engineering Drawing and Graphics. In addition to teaching, I have a strong research aptitude. I have published more than (30) Journal publications (with Impact factor) in high visible journals such as IJHMT, Journal of cleaner production, Plosone, etc. I am an experienced user of CAD and analysis software e.g., Workbench (Fluent, structural, and modal modules), Modeling software (Pro-Engineer, AutoCAD, etc.). Also, I have been recognized as an approved supervisor by Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan and now supervising 01 Ph. D and 07 MS students.
