Dr. Shahnawaz Qureshi joined FAST National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences (NUCES) as an Assistant Professor in July 2019. Dr. Qureshi obtained a Ph.D. in computer science in the research area of machine learning and deep learning. Dr. Qureshi won the Thailand Education Hub for Southern Region of ASEAN countries scholarship, Prince of Songkla University for Ph.D. position from 2016 to 2019. He did MS computer science from Blekinge Institute of Technology Sweden. His master research project was relevant to European project known as PsyIntEC- Psychophysiological interaction and empathetic cognition for human-robot cooperative work. I have 5 years of successful professional teaching and research experience in national and international level institutions around the world. I have been playing a role as a member in the International Association of Engineers including Society of Artificial Intelligence, Society of Data Mining, Society of Scientific Computing and Society of Bioinformatics from 2015 to present.
