Zohaib Khalid Qazi

Biography

Zohaib Khalid Qazi is a PhD candidate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University (NCSU). Zohaib received his B.E in electronics engineering from Mehran UET Jamshoro Pakistan and M.S in control engineering from National University of Sciences and Technology Pakistan.  He worked as an assistant manager at Pakistan Space and Upper Atmosphere research commission for about three years before coming to NC State on the Fulbright scholarship. Zohaib did his M.S in electrical engineering from NCSU and continued into the PhD program in electrical engineering with graduate minors in mathematics and biotechnology.

Zohaib is currently working as a graduate research assistant in the EnBiSys research lab on a Department of Energy (DOE) funded project that aims to develop probabilistic graphical models of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin-carbohydrate complex formation and regulation in the plant secondary cell wall. During his appointment, Zohaib has developed strong analytical skills in data analysis, optimization, machine learning and predictive modeling with extensive programming experience in MATLAB, R and Python. He has also developed wet lab skills in polymerase chain reaction, agarose gel electrophoresis, SDS-PAGE, Western blot, affinity chromatography, and deep sequencing library preparation and its analysis.

Zohaib worked as a researcher at EMR Labs, NCSU during summer 2017 where he developed an algorithm that uses dynamic molecular simulation data to predict interaction sites between polyunsaturated fatty acids and voltage gated sodium channels.
