After completing undergraduate in Mechanical Engineering, I spent nine very rewarding years in the corporate sector. I experienced international exposure and worked on several important projects. During these years I remained actively involved in recruitment and selection, performance management and training and development of employees. These opportunities provided me insights into the people management side for which I developed deep interest. 

The desire to further explore these topics and the passion to contribute to the society steered me towards academia, and I joined M Phil leading to PhD program at Lahore University of Management Sciences in 2007. The extended coursework expanded the horizons of my thoughts whereas the opportunity to spend time at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, as a visiting researcher, honed my research skills.

I have a teaching experience of sixteen years (five years before PhD and eleven years after it) at undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels. I have worked in higher education institutions in Pakistan, Canada, Malaysia and Morocco. I have supervised two PhD and seven M Phil students and currently I am supervising three PhD students. I have received prestigious international awards and my research has been published in top quality journals such as Journal of Organizational Behavior and Applied Psychology. I am extensively engaged in executive education, consultancy work, and social and community services. Travelling - both inside and outside of Pakistan - is my passion.
