Dr. Iqra Muhammad obtained her Ph.D. degree from the University of Liverpool, UK in January 2023. Her research interests encompass Knowledge graphs and Clinical data analysis. The prime focus of her research was the generation, maintenance and utilisation of knowledge graphs in the context of curated document databases. In general, she is interested in other related problems that fall under the domain of Machine learning.

During her doctoral studies,Iqra was part of the Data Mining and Machine Learning Research Group at the University of Liverpool. She has also worked as a Summer intern for Google Summer of Code from May 2018 to September 2018. During her 4-months internship at Sugar Labs for Google Summer of Code, she developed a novel application called Primero1. She has also volunteered as an instructor for Code First Girls during her time in UK.
