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 and ElectronicsUniversity of Liverpool. Dr. Abbas joined GIK Institute as Assistant Professor (2011–2016) in the Faculty of Computer Sciences & Engineering.

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 (2003–2011) 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.

Dr. Abbas has authored more than 100 research publications with a cumulative impact factor of 200+. He has won several prestigious national and international awards, including the Best Application Prospect Award at Huawei ICT Competition Middle East, and HEC Best Research Paper Award. Additionally, he has won two research awards, an award for excellence in teaching, and several cash awards for research publications at GIK Institute. Apart from research and teaching, Dr. Abbas also has a number of contributions in his administrative roles at GIK, first as Director (IT) and then as Advisor (IT) and Director (Huawei ICT Academy). He has been an active member of the committees for curriculum development and establishing new degree programs at GIK. Dr. Abbas has supervised a number of MS and PhD students and final year projects, with a few showing high impact in the field. He has been a member of a number of key committees at GIK and advisor of several student societies. He is the co-founding member of the Telecommunications and Networking (TeleCoN) Research Center at GIK. Dr. Abbas serves as member of editorial boards and reviewer for leading impact factor journals in his field. Additionally, he has been the member of organizing committees and technical program committees of a number of highly ranked international conferences and workshops. 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.
