I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Northeastern's Institute for Experiential AI. I work with the Responsible AI team and spend a lot of time thinking about safety and evaluations for LLMs these days.

I received my Ph.D. in computer science at Northeastern University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Alan Mislove. My dissertation focused on measuring discrimination and harmful outcomes due to personalization in online advertising. I am a recipient of Northeastern's Outstanding Graduate Student in Research award.

During grad school, I interned at Oracle Labs, where I worked with the Machine Learning Research Group on measuring linguistic biases in LLMs in connection to model scale. I also interned at Intel, where I worked on generating model cards and explanations for their repository of ML models.

Before Northeastern, I got my master's degree in computer science at Saarland University. At Saarland, I was a member of Krishna Gummadi's Networked Systems group at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems.




Back home in Lahore, Pakistan, I did my undergrad in computer science at FAST-NUCES. My Twitter handle is the name of the neighborhood in Lahore where I grew up. I live in Cambridge, MA with my wife, whose love, wisdom, and care work make graduate school easier.

The font for all headings on this homepage is inspired by Ed Ruscha W.E.B. Du Bois – who used data visualizations as a way to communicate social injustices.

Outside of work, I enjoy reading, indie video games and music. I am a student of the tabla – it's something I picked up very late in life but am currently refusing to give up. On difficult days, I like to re-read Bill Watterson's commencement speech.
