He completed his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M) and M. Phil with distinction (2nd Position) from University of Agriculture, Faisalabad–Pakistan. He earned his Doctorate in the year 2016 from Al-Nafees Medical College, Isra University, Islamabad. During his Doctorate, he investigated the pharmacokinetic behavior of a novel antibiotic danofloxacin in the domestic ruminant species and applied the advanced PK/PD Modeling & Simulation approach to rationalize the dosage regimen. He played leading role to generate PK profile of danofloxacin in domestic animals in Pakistan. He also focused the pharmacological aspect of different plants. After completion of his education, he served as “Assistant Professor” at the well reputed King Edward Medical University, Lahore-Pakistan. He has published 35 research articles in National and International journals. His research interest areas are Ethno-pharmacology with special emphasis on Clinical Pharmacology, PK/PD Modeling & Integration, to rationalize the antibiotics. In his area of interest, he has also completed one research project of Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan.
