About me

Hi! I am a first-year Master’s student in the Networks, Systems and Security (NSS) lab at the Department of Computer Science, University of British Columbia, where I am advised by Ivan Beschastnikh.

My research interests lie in the area of privacy and security in distributed multi-party machine learning. More specifically, I am currently working on a system to train machine learning models collaboratively in a peer to peer setting while preserving privacy of an individual’s data and defending the training process from poisoning attacks.

Previously, I completed my undergraduate degree from Lahore University of Management Sciences where I worked on developing an energy-efficient routing protocol for IOT devices and a design pattern retrieval system for software developers.

Here’s a link to my resume.
