I received a PhD in Computer Science from University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, UK; master’s degree in Computer Engineering from Manav Rachna International University, India; and a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Integral University, India. I completed my primary and secondary education during 1991-2003 from Colvin Taluqdars’ College in Lucknow, which is one of the oldest private schools in India. I was born in the city of Lucknow and spent nearly 24 years. Here is a YouTube video if you want to see Lucknow.

I have previously worked at Swansea University, Wales, UK; University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, UK; Dilla University, Ethiopia; and Manav Rachna International University, India.

I am also associated with following professional bodies:

  • Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
  • Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (SMIEEE).
