Now I am a PHD research scholar at the Department of Health Biotechnology and work on human reproduction with special interest in genetics of human male infertility. I have previously worked at the Department of Health, KPK where I supervised health care diagnostic laboratory (PVT LTD), Batkhela, Malakand, KPK. I also worked at the Shifa International Hospital PVT LTD, Islamabad in Department of Pathology (laboratory) and at the Riaz Medical Center, Sharjah, UAE as a lab in charge. Currently I am an in charge at the Alfalah International Hospital, Afghanistan. I am a visiting lecturer of human pathology at Rehman Institute of Paramedical Sciences, Batkhela, KPK. I am actively involved in human reproduction and exploring new insight into the genetics of familial male infertility in Khyber pakhtun khwa where consanguineous marriages are dominant and a significant factor for the transmission of hereditary diseases. My research area include screening for such infertile families performing various specialized blood tests like karyotyping and PCR as well as sequencing to diagnose the etiology of infertility in married couples in our less developed area.
