Syed Ibrahim Ghaznavi

I'm a PhD candidate at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London. I work with Prof. Abbas Edalat, Dr. Dasha Nicholls and Prof. Duncan Gillies; my research involves designing, building and evaluating an immersive virtual reality platform for treating mental ailments. My interests include (not limited to) Virtual/Augmented reality Systems, Computer Networks, Artificial Intelligence and Information Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D).

I am the lead developer of the Rescue Base Station (RBS) - a customized cellular network which can reinstate GSM cellular services in catastrophe struck areas. This project was completed in collaboration with Prof. Umar Saif, Prof. Tapan Parikh and Prof. Kurtis Heimerl. Our work received widespread international media coverage. I am also collaborating with UC berkeley's Technology and Infrastructure for Emerging Regions (TIER) group to release a commercial version of the Rescue Base Station.
