Google Research Faculty Award plans to distinguish issues identified with innovation and look for their answer from the workforce to outline advancements that will enable the future ages to utilize innovation all the more successfully. Google Faculty Research Awards are organized as seed financing (up to $150,000 USD) to help one graduate understudy for multi-year and are granted as an unlimited blessing to help the examination of employees at top class world colleges.
The honor is very lofty and focused as just 15% of candidates get financing and every proposition experiences a broad vast survey process.

Henceforth, it is a major respect for the two Professors, LUMS and Pakistan to have won this honor.
Dr. Ihsan remarked about his examination:
“Since we returned to Pakistan and joined LUMS, we have been driven by the objective of enhancing the quality and entrance of Internet get to. Roused by this vision, we advanced an exploration motivation that depends on two vital patterns. To begin with, cell phones have turned into the predominant method of Internet access in creating nations. Second, low-end cell phones (with constrained abilities) and moderate systems are normal in creating nations, which essentially debase clients’ involvement with the Web.
We accept in the event that we can make the Web quicker on moderate gadgets and systems, this can have a significant financial effect on a huge number of clients in creating nations.”
