Ever since from my childhood, I have been fascinated or rather overwhelmed by science and its creations. I had always considered it the most interesting subject which helped me answer many questions that grilled my mind. The more I studied, the more I got interested. The way I could control my wireless toy car, the way aircraft fly and the way I could see my home cricket team play live while being on the opposite half of the globe.
I was also greatly influenced by my father who is an electrical engineer in merchant navy and my brother, an aerospace engineer in PAF, who always made the air around my home filled with engineering concepts and applications. My excellent academic scores at school level and my penchant for science rightly guided me to take up the physical science stream at the pre-university level from which I drew inspiration to imbibe the true spirit of engineering.
I took up Electronics Engineering as my graduate major as it had tremendous potential to becomes a dominate force in this Millennium affecting all walks of human life. The range of subjects that I was exposed to during the Electronics Engineering course fascinated me to great extents, but it did not take me long to realize my proclivity towards RF Techniques, Microwaves and Antenna and Wave Propagation. The field of RF and Microwaves has undergone a significant paradigm shift in the last decade. From being a technology that had its greatest utilization in defense and military based applications, it is currently in the forefront as a fundamental technology in Wireless Communications and other industrial, medical and commercial applications.
Working as an RF design engineer for the past one and a half year in RF/Microwave Lab at Satellite Research and Development Commission, SUPARCO and delving into projects ranging from Microwave Amplifiers to Oscillators and from Micro-strip Antenna Design to their complex feeding structures has further strengthened and cherished my predilection for Applied Electromagnetic and Microwave Engineering and has made my career, my fervor and my passion.
I feel that graduate study alone does not provide the specialized academic exposure essential to reach higher professional levels in the present day technology-driven world. Moreover the scarcity of Highly Qualified personnel and the amount of research work done in the field of Microwaves in Pakistan; together with the never quenching thirst to serve my country with the best of my abilities motivates me to go in for higher studies.
I am aware that a career in research requires strong motivation, hard work, discipline, maturity and perseverance, and I am confident that I possess these qualities. I yearn to play an active role in advancing the intellectual frontiers of Microwave Engineering and move towards my goal of contributing more effectively to the society as an Engineering Scientist.
