Usama received his Master’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech as a Fulbright scholar in 2016, and Bachelor’s degree from LUMS in 2012. After his undergraduate degree, he worked at CYPHYNETS Lab at LUMS where he studied dolphins. The focus of his research was on sonar tracking of the Indus River dolphins and swimming behavior of the common Bottlenose dolphins. Later on, in his graduate research, Usama chose to learn about flying insects such as hawkmoths. He performed a comparative stability analysis and modeled the flight control of different species of hawkmoths. Currently, he continues to explore further research directions on this topic while collaborating with the members of Agile Systems Lab at Georgia Tech.
