Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I received my PhD in 2011 from Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad, Pakistan, under the supervision of Professor S.D. Bulman-Fleming (Wilfrid Laurier University) and Professor Q. Mushtaq (Quaid-i-Azam University). From 2011 to 2014 I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Tartu, Estonia. During 2013-2014 I also worked at the Department of Pure Mathematics, Faculty of Mathematics, University of Waterloo as a visiting researcher.
Prior to joining Laurier, I worked as a term Assistant Professor for the winter 2015 term at Cape Breton University, Sydney, Nova Scotia.
Research Interests / Ongoing Projects
Currently I am investigating congruence extension properties, amalgamation and morphisms of ordered algebras. I am particularly interested in ordered monoids and semigroups. I am also interested in studying properties of (unordered) algebras that are not affected by the introduction of order.
Awards and Achievements
Besides receiving financial support from different funds, I have been able to secure two major research grants. These are MOBILATAS Grant by the Estonian Ministry of Science and IRSIP by the Higher Education Commission, Pakistan.
