Dr. Shabbar Naqvi

DG ORIC

Dr. Shabbar earned his PhD in Advanced Fuzzy Logic from the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom in 2014 and Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Computer Systems Engineering from the NED University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi in the years 2001 and 2006 respectively. His first job was as a lecturer in Computer Science in Mehran Degree College Karachi where he served from January 2002 to July 2005. He was responsible for delivering lectures in the subjects of Information Technology and C-programming to ICS and Bachelor degree students as well as managing the Local Area Network (LAN) of the college. He started serving as a lecturer in the department of CSES in August, 2005 on contract basis and became a permanent faculty member in December, 2005.

Dr. Shabbar also served as Chairman of the department from October, 2006 to February, 2007. His main area of research is data analysis of complicated high dimensional big data sets. He is interested in applications of fuzzy set theory with an emphasis on Type-2 fuzzy logic. He is also interested in the analysis of data sets using commonly used unsupervised learning methods like clustering algorithms and optimisation techniques like Hill Climbing and Simulated Annealing.
