A Transport Planning Research Associate at the ITDP India Programme, Faraz provides technical input to the Urban Development and Housing Department, Government of Jharkhand and Ranchi Municipal Corporation.

Faraz majored in Architecture from National Institute of Technology, Patna and did his Masters in Infrastructure Systems, specialising in Transportation, from IIT-Roorkee.
