Shahid Manzoor has a MSc Computer Science degree from Saarland University, Germany. Prior to coming to Buffalo, he was a full time researcher at Institute for Formal Ontology and Medical Information Science in Germany. Currently, he is Senior Programmer/Analyst in Referent Tracking Unit implementing a prototype Referent Tracking System (RTS) using client-server, peer-2-peer and webservices architectural technologies. He is also involved in the integration strategies (especially using middleware approach) implementation of the RTS with EHR applications.
