I was born and raised in Karachi, Pakistan (aka “City of Lights”, except for the loadshedding hours). I went to the SMS School for most of the elementary school and then transferred to the Beaconhouse School where I finished my high school diploma. In 2013 I moved to Vancouver, Canada (where I am currently based-for now…) and enrolled in the Mechanical Engineering program at UBC. In 2015 I was part of the Octahedronli (aka Cubli 2.0) and Flying Platform project at IDSC ETH-Z. Summer 2016, I had a fling with the PR2 at CARIS-UBC, while working on the HMI Project. During most of 2017 I helped out Natel develop their controls platform. I graduated in 2018 with a specialization in Mechatronics. Since then I have helped the engineering team at BMT with giving analytical superpowers (JK - just payload detection and terrain vision) to heavy mining machinery. I was then briefly part of the early engineering team at a cybersecurity startup Virgil Systems where I helped prototype their proprietary p2p data integrity network. Currently, I am hacking away with the folks at Grafana. I like to program, design, hack and break systems, well and I like blogging about such instances too. I like writing and am a big fan of poetry.
