I was born on October 3, 1972 in Aligarh, India, as the son of Late Professor Sohail Ahmad and Professor Shadbano Ahmad. My schooling from primary school up to high school was completed at the Our Lady of Fatima, convent school in Aligarh.


After completing my High School in 1989, I enrolled at the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), Aligarh, to complete my Senior Secondary School education in science (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics). In 1992, I gained admission to the Zakir Husain College of Engineering and Technology (ZHCET), AMU, Aligarh, to pursue a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering. I graduated with a bachelor of engineering (BEng) degree in electrical engineering from ZHCET in 1996.


I joined Tata Chemicals Ltd., Babrala, India, as an electrical engineer in May 1997. I worked for Tata Chemicals as an electrical engineer until September 2000.


In September 2000, I proceeded to the United Kingdom (UK) to pursue my masters in Computer Science from the University of Birmingham. I graduated with a master of science (MSc) degree in computer science from the University of Birmingham in October 2001.


In January 2002, I was able to obtain a merit scholarship from the Department of Computing at the University of Surrey, UK, to pursue a PhD. While I was in the process of completing my PhD studies at Surrey, in June 2006, I was offered a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Dynamical Analysis Laboratory of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa.


I proceeded to Canada in June 2006 to pursue my postdoctoral studies. I graduated with a doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree in computer science from the University of Surrey in June 2007, while working as a postdoctoral fellow in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa.


I completed my postdoctoral training in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa in January 2009. In January 2009, I joined the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (SEECS), University of Ottawa as a research associate. At SEECS, I am working on the development of instrumentation and algorithms for robust blood pressure monitoring in conjunction with exploring paradigms for assessing multiple physiological information.
