I am currently working as Assistant professor in SEECS, NUST. My first degree was in Software Engineering at Fatima Jinnah Women University, Pakistan. I did my Masters in Software Engineering from National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Pakistan. Ihave been awarded Endowment Fund Scholarship during my masters' studies in 2005. I have been awarded a scholarship by NUST in 2006 for my PhD studies abroad. I joined the astrodynamic group at Surrey Space Centre, University of Surrey, UK in 2006 and worked on attitude determination of spacecraft under the supervision of Dr. Phil Palmer. I successfully completed my PhD in 2010 and continued my research in remote sensing and image processing. My Research Interest are Satellite Remote Sensing, GIS, Image Processing, Computer Vision, Astrodynamics. Currently I am involved in collaboration of SEECS with Surrey Space Centre, University of Surrey, UK
Research Interest

My resarch interest are in satellite remote sensing, image processing and computer vision.

Current Research Projects

Research Activities

Research Proposal Submitted:
  1. Submitted research proposal for " Georectification of NigeriaSat-2 images without Ground Control Points (GCPs) using Multiple Imaging sensors of NigeriaSat-2", in Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL), Surrey, UK in March 2010 (Awaiting for response)

  2. Submitted research proposal on "Georectification of images without Ground Control Points (GCPs) uses Multiple Satellite Imaging sensors", in European Space Agency under innovative triangle initiative (ESA ITI) program in May 2010. Letter of Support has been awarded by Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL), UK, for this proposal in May 2010. The application has been accepted on 19 November 2010.

  3. Submitted research proposal on "Disaster Monitoring through Georectification of Satellite imagery without Ground Control Points (GCP)"in HEC-British Council INSPIRE funding Scheme in July 2010. (Awaiting for response)

Research Proposal Accepted:
  1. The proposal submitted in European Space Agency under innovative triangle initiative (ESA ITI) program has been accepted on 19 November 2010. This project is about Georectification of images without Ground Control Points (GCPs) using Multiple Satellite Imaging sensors. The primary goal of this research is to provide highly accurate georectified imagery using no ground control information to time sensitive applications such as disaster monitoring, as soon as the data is available.
This project will be funded by European Space Agency (ESA). The amount of funding is 50,000 Euros on the contract of 9 months. This project will also supported by Surrey Satellite Technology (SSTL), UK in terms of providing satellite imagery.
