Dear all

My name is M Khalid Shaikh. I am working at the Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science & Technology Karachi Pakistan. I describe myself as an academic and researcher in Information Technology, and a budding data scientist.

I hold a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Computer Science from Pakistan, a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree by research from the UK and I also holds a Masters’ (MSc) degree in Computer science from Pakistan. The major subjects of BSc that I have attended were Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics. I am a certified PRINCE2® Foundation/Practitioner Project Manager from the UK. Currently, I am pursuing Master's degree in Statistics through distance learning from Pakistan's Virtual University. I already hold substantial knowledge in Statistics and data analysis because of the extensive knowledge obtained at BSc level and in a semester that I had done in MSc Statistics from University of Karachi in year 2000. I quit the program later to pursue a Masters degree in Computer Science. However my interest in this subject remained as it and I am now pursuing MSc Statistics from Virtual University, Government of Pakistan, as mentioned above.

I did MPhil by Research from Loughborough University, UK. My PhD degree is from Federal Urdu University, Pakistan. Whereas PRINCE2® Foundation/Practitioner certifications are the products of UK government.

Currently, I am not an HEC approved doctoral supervisor. However I intend to register with the HEC very soon. Kindly visit the page for understanding the eligibility for applying for doctoral research under my supervision; this eligibility will remain the same once I get the HEC’s approved supervisor status. I am now listed on the HEC PhD Country Directory as well.

My area of interest is software project management, software engineering, research methods and computer programming. I love to teach and I am an avid reader of non-fiction books. In my free time I like to write in various English dailies.
