Faculty Profile

Dr. Zartash Afzal Uzmi

Associate Professor

Department of Electrical Engineering

Zartash Uzmi received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2002. His graduate research focused on Multi-user Detection for CDMA systems for which he devised schemes and algorithms for practical implementation of multi-user detectors. He has held positions at Nokia Research center, Bell Laboratories, and Hewlett Packard Company. He is on LUMS faculty since 2002. At LUMS, his current research is focused on scalable and efficient network design and measurements for wide-area deployments as well as data center networks.
