Dr. Adil Zulfiqar is an Assistant Professor and HOD of Electrical Engineering Department at FAST National University of Computer & Emerging Sciences (NUCES), Chiniot-Faisalabad campus. He received his B.Sc. Degree in Electrical Engineering (Telecommunication) from Government College University Lahore, Pakistan in 2011, MS Degree in Electronics Engineering in 2013 from Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology (GIKI), and his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong in 2018. His PhD research on “stability and stabilization of linear time invariant systems” mainly focused on linear time-delay systems both continuous and discrete-time systems.

Dr. Adil Zulfiqar also held postdoctoral experience from October, 2018 to July, 2019 from The Chinese university of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, where he worked in the department of Biomedical engineering mainly focusing on design and control of soft robotics.
