biography

Dr. Adnan holds a PhD in Computer Engineering from the Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. He has also been a post doc researcher in the same university twice. He has published more than 21 papers in refereed conferences and journals. According to Google scholar his research papers have been cited more than 189 times. Broadly his research interests include wireless sensor and ad hoc networks, Internet of Things (IoT), distributed algorithms, mobile and distributed systems and cloud computing. Currently, he is working on algorithms for finding efficient virtual LAN topologies, opportunistic networks, heuristics for dial a ride problem, applications of random walk in large scale wireless sensor networks and exploiting EFI vehicle’s sensors using on board diagnostics. He is the member of midlab (middleware laboratory) of Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Sapienza University of Rome and works closely with Prof. Roberto Baldoni and Dr. Roberto Beraldi. In addition to research, he is also assisting the research community by serving in a number of technical program committees of national and international conferences and reviewer of many international journals and government project proposals.

Dr. Adnan is an HEC PhD approved supervisor. He has been mentoring a number of MS and PhD computer science students. He has taught variety of courses at graduate and undergraduate level including Internet of Things (IoT), Advanced Topics in IoT, Parallel and Distributed Algorithms, Special Topics in Networks, Distributed Systems, Computer Networks, Digital Logic Design and Electronics at places like National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences (FAST-NU) Lahore, Sapienza University of Rome and Aitchison College, Lahore.
