I was born and raised in Pakistan. After completing my bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering in Pakistan, I decided to pursue my higher education in the Netherlands. The University of Twente offered me a UTS grant for following a master’s degree in Embedded Systems. After studying Embedded Systems for a while, I got sick of it, so I switched my masters’ track to Human media interaction and started working on EEG based BCI’s . In 2011, I decided to join the Donders Institute as a trainee and started working there on real-time fMRI analysis and development. After graduating with a masters degree in Human Media Interaction (Cum Laude), I started working as full-time research assistant at Donders Center for Cognition. My research interests include real-time fMRI neurofeedback, decoding visual perception and imagination, and real-time fMRI methods development.
I can be a workaholic sometimes but when I am working, I like to cook, travel, and do fitness training.
