A typical day starts with juggling the funny choices of my three year old daughter (Huda) for food and clothing. After getting behind my in schedule, of course, I settle into the home office and so some brief planning for the day. The rest of the day mostly involves performing lab experiments, recording data and catching up with the write up of research and future planning. I would be lucky to finish my day playing and dancing with my little one and cooking some delicious Pakistani food.
Improving eating quality of low value meat from culled dairy cows.
Working in the meat lab, cutting and cooking of meat for my research project.
Routine home chores, playing with my daughter, cooking food and talking to my family back home.
I’m not a big fan of music, but light Indian melodies if I am sick of current affairs.
