I have had 15 years of diversified experience in several setups including private and public. During this span I have had opportunity to serve in varied roles that started as a research associate in a semi govt firm, I was able to rectify my research inclinations. Upon being recruited in Pak Army as a commissioned officer I served in various leadership roles and lead several tasks and teams. My capacities that I developed throughout my unique set of experience as an urban planner urged me to benefit the profession at large and no better opportunity could be there to serve the purpose than teaching young scholars. As a teacher my goal remains to impart such skills to the students that may enable them to perform in any environment by teaching them to be everything from being a leader to an efficient subordinate.
