Murtaza Taj earned his Ph.D. and M.Sc. degrees in electronic engineering and computer science from the Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), United Kingdom, in 2009 and 2005, respectively. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor at the Lahore University of Management Sciences, Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering, Pakistan. He is also an adjunct faculty at the Ontario Tech University, Canada. His research interest lies in the area of Computer Vision, Graphics and Image Processing. In particular, he is interested in detection and tracking of object in 2D and 3D scenes and in automatic generation of 3D models from raw point cloud data. At LUMS he is a director of Computer Vision and Graphics Lab (a research group within LUMS computer science department) and a director of Technology for People Initiative (TPI) (a research and development group at LUMS that develop solution to leverage technology to catalyse development in the public sector and improve data accessibility to facilitate good governance.
