IMG_9773 (1)I’m a 3rd-year P.hD student in the Computer Science Department at the University of Southern California. I’m very fortunate to work with Prof. Ramesh Govindan as my advisor in the Networked Systems Laboratory. I received an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology, Peshawar (UETP).

My research interests are in areas like mobile networks, mobile systems, autonomous and connected vehicles. My Google Scholar profile can be viewed here. You can contact me at [firstname]ahm[at]usc[dot]edu
