Experience (Field)  As Assistant Director in GSP : 14 years experience in the following fields. (From 29-10-81 to 06-12-95)

 i)   2 Years in Cainozoic mammals of Pakistan. (Fossil collection, Section measurement, partly mapping Dadu and Larkana Districts, Sindh)
ii)   2 Years in Mesozoic, Ammonites and Brachiopods, Fossil collection, Section measurement ( Lasbela, Khuzdar, Muslim Bagh, Loralai and Uthal Districts, Balochistan).
iii)   2 Years mapping around Ziarat District, Balochistan.
iv)   6 Years in Micropaleontology in Benthic Foraminiferal Biostratigraphy of Late Cretaceous and Early tertiary in Southern Balochistan, Pakistan.
v)    Year in Permo-Triassic rocks, fossil collection, Section measurement (Muslim Bagh and Kalat Districts, Balochistan). Besides this under the  joint GSP-Japanese Project the detailed Stratigraphic and Section measurement field work were carried around the Fort Manro, Raki Nala and Sakhi Sarwar in the South of Zinda Pir anticline.During the field work The Mesozoic exposed sequence and Tertiary rocks of the areas were focused for lithological logs, contact relationship and fossil indentification.
vi)   The subjects offered in M.Sc are Micropaleontology, Petroleum Geology and Sedimentology. In petroleum Geology specially, the study of reservoir rocks and secondary recovery methods were studied.
