Before that, he completed his BSc in Electrical Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology Lahore, Pakistan (2000).

Abubakr does fundamental research in robotics, sensor networks, networked control, and recenlty in quantum information sciences. He is developing some novel analytical techniques at the interface of computational algebraic topology, differential geometry, distributed algorithms and control theory for these applications.

His PhD thesis Graphs, Simplicial Complexes and Beyond: Topological Tools for Multi-agent Coordination won the Georgia Tech Sigma Xi Best PhD Dissertation Award for the year 2006. Nominations for this award are received from all departments of science and engineering at Georgia Tech. The thesis has appeared in book form in 2008.

Before joining LUMS, he was a postdoctoral researcher first at the University of Pennsylvania and then at McGill University. He has also spent brief periods of collaboration and research at the Mathematics departments of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Stanford University, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) at Berkeley, and at Caltech.

Before starting his gradute studies, he worked in the industry on several problems in signal processing, target tracking, estimation theory, radar & sonar systems and pattern recognition.
