Faculty Profile

Dr. Ahmad Kamal Nasir

Assistant Professor

Department of Electrical Engineering

Dr Ahmad Kamal Nasir is director of Engineering Laboratory at LUMS. He is an assistant professor (IPFP) of electrical engineering at LUMS.

He received his PhD in Mobile Robotics in 2014 from University of Siegen Germany on Cooperative SLAM. As a graduate student, he also obtained two masters degrees in Mechatronics from Uni-Siegen and UET Lahore. Before that, he completed his BSc in Mechanical Engineering from UET Lahore, Pakistan. He has also worked in industry as product development manager at research and development department of MicroTech Industries, Lahore, Pakistan.

In 2014, he has joined LUMS and affiliated with CYPHYNETS, the Laboratory for Cyber Physical Networks and Systems at LUMS. He does research in mobile robotics, computer vision and embedded control systems. His students are developing visual-inertial navigation devices and control systems for aerial robots.
