About me - my CV
I am currently working as an Environmental Specialist at Hagler Bailly Pakistan. I've has conducted many environmental impact assessments including those of coal mines and power plants in the Thar coal fields, and hydropower dams on the Jhelum River.
I've worked on a wide breadth of multi-disciplinary projects for organizations such as the Great Lakes Commission, Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise, World Wildlife Fund, and the Heritage Foundation of Pakistan. I'm the co-founder of Cheruvu, a startup that is developing techniques to provide site specific nutrient management advice to rural farmers and is currently working with 5000 cotton farmers in rural India.
I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2015, on a Fulbright Scholarship. I received a Masters in Environmental Science, with a focus in Sustainable Systems at the School of Natural Resources and a Graduate Certificate in Complex Systems Science at the Center for the Study of Complex Systems.
As an environmental scientist my goal is to improve the environment of Pakistan and the resilience of its people to local stresses such as freshwater scarcity, food security, forest degradation etc layered with the effects of climate change. To ensure such efforts are permanent and effective they have to bring about systemic change. For that I first must understand the system in which they operate and the coupled human natural system that our environment is happens to be very complex.
I graduated with the first batch of the School of Science and Engineering at LUMS, in 2008! I worked on mathematically modeling systems, chaos, the environment and rugby. If you are a Physics major at LUMS or are considering the option feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
