CYPHYNETS: Laboratory for Cyber Physical Networks and Systems

Welcome to the research group of Dr Abubakr Muhammad. CYPHYNETS is based at the LUMS School of Science & Engineering SSE. We do research in systems engineering, applied mathematics and applied physics. We do both fundamental and applied research in complex systems, computational geometry & topology, quantum information sciences, robotics, networked sensing and feedback control theory. One of our main focus is the development of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) for welfare and infrastructure development in the context of Pakistan and the third world. Our motto is Basic research for basic problems!.
