Dr. Ihsan Ayyub Qazi

Associate Professor

Department Of Computer Sciences

Ihsan Ayyub Qazi is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science in the SBA School of Science and Engineering at LUMS, Pakistan since October 2011. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Pittsburgh, PA, USA in 2010 and the BSc. (Hons) degree from LUMS with a double major in Computer Science and Mathematics in 2005. Previously, he has held positions at BBN Technologies (Cambridge, USA) and the Centre for Advanced Internet Architectures (Melbourne, Australia). His research interests are in computer networks and distributed systems and span cloud computing and datacenters, wireless networks, and Internet censorship. He has published in premier networking journals, such as IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, and conferences including ACM SIGCOMM and IEEE INFOCOM. He is the recipient of the Andrew Mellon Fellowship and the Best Graduate Student Research Award from the University of Pittsburgh. His research has been sponsored by the United States National Science Foundation (NSF), Australian Research Council (ARC), HEC, World Bank, and LUMS. He is a member of ACM and IEEE.
