Waqas Sultani



I received my Ph.D. in summer 2017 under Prof. Mubarak Shah at Center for Research in Computer Vision.

Before this, I earned my MS from Seoul National Univeristy, South Korea under supervision of  Prof. Jin Young Choi in Perception and
Intelligence Lab
. Prior to this, I received my Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from Univeristy of Engineering and

Technology, Taxila, Pakistan ( North, South). In summer 2014, I have done internship in Xerox
