Background


Dr. Abbas completed his B.S. (1999–2002) in Computer Science at Edwardes College Peshawar, and received M.S. (2003–2005) in Distributed Systems from University of Liverpool (QS World Rank # 181), England, with distinction in research dissertation. The award of distinction rendered him recipient of a bursary to study for his Doctorate. He earned his Ph.D. (2006–2010) from the Department of Electrical Engineering & Electronics, University of Liverpool. Dr. Abbas joined GIK Institute as Assistant Professor (2011–2016) in the Faculty of Computer Sciences & Engineering. He has also served the Institute as Director (IT) from 2012 to 2017. Currently, he is serving as Associate ProfessorDirector (Huawei ICT Academy) and Advisor (IT)

Prior to joining GIK, Dr. Abbas was with Liverpool Hope University, where he served as Research Assistant (2006–2009) in the Intelligent and Distributed Systems (IDS) Laboratory, and later as Project Coordinator (2009–2010) at the IDS Laboratory on a knowledge transfer project funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England. After the completion of his Doctorate, Dr. Abbas served as Seminar Tutor (2010–2011) at the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering, Liverpool Hope University. He had also contributed as Mentor (20032011) for many Edwardian students at Liverpool Hope University during his stay in Liverpool. Before embarking on his Ph.D., Dr. Abbas served briefly as Lecturer (2005–2006) at Edwardes College Peshawar, and formerly as Teaching Assistant (2002–2003) at the same College. In recognition of his professional standing, Dr. Abbas was elected as Fellow of the Institute of Science & Technology, England, in 2011, was elected to the grade of the Senior Member of IEEE in 2015, and was elected as Fellow of the British Computer Society in 2016.
