Brief portfolio:

I received my MS/MPhil from Qurtuba University in Peshawar. I'm working on my Ph.D. at the University of Peshawar with a specialization in macroeconomics and economic development. Due to my dedication to instructing and imparting my knowledge and abilities to my students, I am very interested in the role of Economics Lecturer. Macroeconomics, international economics, and economic development were additional study areas for my MPhil Economic. I will be a productive researcher and lecturer in your department thanks to my academic preparation and the research component of my MPhil degree. With ten papers in all, both globally and nationally, I have extensive expertise in evaluating university competence.
