  • 9 Sept. 2014 By the grace of All Mighty our paper "Forecasting for demand response in smart grids: An analysis on use of anthropologic and structural data and short term multiple loads forecasting." has been awarded the Best research paper award by HEC for the year 2012-13.

  • 29 August. 2014 I will be presenting my lecture preparation methods at the GIFT annual teachers training workshop. The crux of the talk is how to use the board and prepare for it before the class.

  • July. 2014 With the grace Allah Almighty, I have been awarded a US$25,000 grant through Pakistan Strategic Support Program's (PSSP) Competitive Grants Program (CGP). The grant is to conduct research to build a what-if simulator to support energy decision makers for policy decision. The simulator will be based on socio-economic modeling of consumer's willingness to pay for different energy technologies and energy management strategies.

  • 25 Feb. 2014 Our paper describing the architecture of the two systems that we developed has been accepted at the ICSE's SE4SG workshop. Now if only we can get a visa from India!
