This page provides brief information about my current research interests, teaching and role at Warwick.


I am a PhD student on the Chancellor's International Scholarship under the supervision of Professor David Firth and Dr Thomas Berrett.

Before joining Warwick in 2019, I completed my MPhil (Statistics) and BSc (Honours) in Statistics as a Gold Medalist from Government College University, Lahore. After completing my BSc (Honours), I was fortunate to have the offer of lectureship from my Alma mater – the Department of Statistics, Government College University – in September 2013. This offer provided me with the opportunity to be involved in research in addition to teaching and doing some administrative work.

  • Compositional Data Analysis (e.g. an alternative approach to log-ratios and compositional distances)
  • Statistical Shape Analysis (e.g. statistical shape analysis for compositional trajectories)
