Ms. Mahnoor Murtaza

Dr. Muhammad Nabeel Tahir completed his doctorate in Information Technology from Multimedia University Malaysia in 2010. His Ph. D mainly focused on intelligent security models and technologies for distributed systems with the thesis title "A Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant privacy aware Contextual Role-Based Access Control model (C-RBAC) for distributed systems". In 2002, he obtained Master Degree in Software Engineering from University of Management & Technology (UMT) that was affiliated with Hamdard University - Pakistan. He Graduated in Computer Science in 2001 from the same university.

Dr. Nabeel has worked in Lahore Garrison University (LGU) as an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology from March 2017 to March 2018 where he taught several courses to undergraduate and M. Phil students including Information Security, Advanced Topics in Computer Networks and Object Oriented Software Engineering. Dr. Nabeel was actively involved in preparing and signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with corporate sector, handling university projects including e-Cafe, research portal for ORIC, Single-Sign-On (SSO) etc. Based on the quality education, International teaching methodologies and high faculty ratings, he was given an opportunity for beta version implementation of learning management system to digitize learning efforts for CS faculty. He was very active and responsible to improve and document all academic activities including curriculum design, designing course codes, establishing academic policies.

From 2004 to 2008, Dr. Nabeel has worked as a lecturer in Multimedia University, Melaka, Malaysia where he taught to Graduate and Post Graduate students, supervised many research, academic and industrial projects. Some of the courses taught are related to computer security, web technologies, communication systems, databases, programming and project management. Prior to that, he was lecturing in University of Management and Technology Pakistan. He also worked as a software engineer in IWAYS Pvt. Ltd. where he managed a team of 20 developers and delivered more than 30 software development projects.

Dr. Nabeel has published number of papers on computer security, role-based access control models including RBAC, authorization mechanism and authorization modeling in ubiquitous computing. He was a member of Knowledge Center Committee and chairperson of KC-Information Server Committee to ensure security of faculty confidential documentations. He had served as an International Advisory Committee member of International Conference on Industrial Applications of Soft Computing Techniques (IIASCT 2011) Orissa, India. He is an expert in teaching, research and development of digital forensics, cyber crime, computer & network security, analyzing system requirements for academic and industrial projects, peer review process, organizing special issues and managing International journals. He serve as an editorial and reviewer board of several International journals and conferences.

With more than 22 years of experience in academic and research. Dr. Nabeel is highly motivated, a true academician and a talented researcher. He loves swimming, tennis and travelling.
