Vita

Syed Atif Mehdi received his Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from National University of Computer & Emerging Sciences, Lahore, Pakistan in the year 2001. For the Bachelor Project, he worked for 8 months at NetSol International in the year 2000 as an internee. After completing BS, he joined NetSol as a "Software Engineer" and worked there for almost 7 months. Afterwards, he completed his  Master in Computer Science Degree with specialization in artificial intelligence from National University of Computer & Emerging Sciences, Lahore, Pakistan. He served as a lecturer at University of Management and Technology till 2007.

He was awarded scholarship by Higher Education Commission of Pakistan to pursue his PhD from Germany in the year 2007. He joined the Robotics Research Lab in October 2007 and completed his PhD in the year 2014. During his PhD, his focus was on learning the presence of an elderly person in the home environment using daily routine of the person. Currently, he is working as a Post-Doc in the group and is responsible for the development of an autonomous Oct-copter that can perform various inspection tasks.
