  • Research is being conducted on developing models for smart grids and their use in designing smart power distribution infrastructure for developing countries. Work in progress includes generation through renewable energy sources, integration with grid, power flow control, smart homes and smart metering infrastructure development. Detai...
  • The Signal, Image and Video Processing lab conducts research in the area of Video Processing, Computer Vision and Signal Processing. Current areas of interest include Activity Analysis and Recognition, Multi-view video (occlusion detection, view synthesis), Distributed Video Coding, Scalable and Multiple Descriptive approaches for het...
  • Research conducted at CYPHYNETS pertains to Systems Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Robotics. The overall aim is the development of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) for welfare, environment and sustainable development. One of the main research thrusts is control, estimation and optimization of water resources in Pakistan. The other m...
  • AdCom lab carries out research in modern-day telecommunication and smart grid systems; its main themes include Modeling, Design, Simulation, Implementation and Performance Characterizations. The lab’s research spans may diverse aspects of telecommunication systems, such as, Massive MIMO, Cross layer Design in Wireless Syste...
  • Stochastic Portfolio Theory is a branch of Mathematical Finance. Robert Merton studied the portfolio allocation problem as a Stochastic Control Problem. In his model, an investor allocates his/her wealth between a risky asset and a riskless asset, then chooses the consumption rate to maximize the total expected utility. Dr. Hussain is...
  • Spectral theory can be seen as a generalization of the ideas and concepts of eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a square matrix to a broader class of operators acting in different spaces. Dr. Usman’s research interest lies in the spectral theory of Quantum graphs. A quantum graph is a metric graph with one-dimensional Schrödinger o...
  • Modeling of complex biological phenomena has become fashionable over the past two decades, as the computing power required to analyze such models has become available. On the other side, non-local calculus has gained significance owing to its applications in various biological and physical phenomena. The theory of non-local calculus h...
  • Algebraic Geometry is the study solutions of multivariate polynomial equations. The solutions of these polynomial equations which are the geometric objects of study in Algebraic Geometry are called algebraic varieties. Dr. Qureshi is interested in classification of families of algebraic varieties. In particular he is interested the cl...
  • Real world problems can be formulated in mathematical terms (modeling), as the models have grown complex, a great deal of computing power is required to study these models. Scientific computation involves investigation of robust and efficient methods for studying problems that require heavy computations. Dr. Sial’s has been work...
