I am a computational social scientist, working as a postdoctoral researcher in School of Mathematical Sciences at University of Adelaide. I am also an Associate Investigator with ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers.

I have over 14 years of experience in the technology industry. From 2005 - 2008, I was the technical team lead at Interactive Group of companies which is a multinational software development and services providing company with more than 500 employees. I later moved on to work with  National University of Sciences and Technology Pakistan as a lecturer. During my appointment I also worked as the department coordinator for 18 months. From 2012 - 2016 I was employed as a Research Scientist with University of Konstanz, Germany.

I finished my PhD in Computer Science from University of Konstanz, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ulrik Brandes, financially supported by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft in 2016. My thesis focused on inferring social relations including friendship links and interactions in partially observable social networks.

My research interests include: social network analysis, machine learning, health analytics, and human computer interaction. My current work focuses on predicting population level events in Australia, detecting fake news and misinformation and modeling polarisation on social media.
