Groups

  • The Program Analysis Group (PAG) at Computer Science Department of LUMS works under the guidance of Dr. Junaid Haroon Siddiqui. Our research is focused on automated verification using program analysis techniques to build reliable and secure programs with an emphasis on parallel, distributed, and concurrent systems software.W...
  • The focus of my research group is to understand the molecular circuits that regulate cell cycle progression and biological signals that trigger exit from the mitotic cell cycle. Mitotic cell cycle is a tightly regulated process and perturbations in cell cycle regulation result in various developmental abnormalities, diseases and death...
  • Research interests:  -Medicinal Chemistry/Drug discovery: The main objective of my group has been to employ our synthetic skills in discovery of movel compounds that can selectively target cancer cells and improve the current day cancer therapy. In this regard, we have been working in two main areas: i) Inhibition of protein-p...
  • This group focuses on synthesis and characterization of functional transition metal oxides with interesting properties and applications. Typically, we investigate perovskite oxides (ABO3) for their potential applications in spintronics, thermoelectric devices, solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) and photocatalysis for environmental remediat...
  • This group focuses on the synthesis of low loss optical materials that can be used in micro photolithography for a wide range of applications such as in backplanes, photonics, microfluidics, data communications and telecommunications. In addition, processes are being developed to produce high refractive index materials (hybrids and na...
  • Quantum mechanics has been an extremely successful physical theory that has led to many technological developments: transistors, lasers and MRI being a few examples. In the last two decades, it has been realized that quantum mechanics can lead to many more novel technologies by utilizing quantum resources like coherence and entangleme...
  • Dr. Muhammad Faryad's group is working on light-matter interaction at the nano scale. One research  is focused on the optical modelling of nano-engineered thin films for optical filtering, optical sensing, and solar-energy harvesting. Furthermore, we work on photonic crystals and metamaterials based on them for opti...
  • In Dr. Sabieh Anwar’s multi-disciplinary research group, the aim is to explore the fundamental properties of materials, especially at the nanoscale, and their interaction with external radiation such as light or electromagnetic radiation. Some aspects of this research also bear societal implications. For example, the group is de...
  • The use of optics in everyday life is ubiquitous. For example, we use internet all the time without realising that ultimately these are light pulses that carry the information across the world on a fibre optic network. The foundations for newer and newer television display technologies like LCDs, LEDs and three-dimensional TVs were la...
