Home . about me

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin, and I was advised by Prof. Tandy Warnow and Prof. Joydeep Ghosh. My PhD was supported by Fulbright International Science and Technology PhD Fellowship. I obtained my B.S and M.S in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).

My research interests lie at the intersection of computer science and computational biology. Curretnly I am working on species tree estimation from gene trees. I am interested in developing novel algorithmic approaches to solve different discrete optimization problems on species tree estimation, considering gene duplications and losses, deep coalescences, horizontal gene transfers etc. I am also very interested in machine learning, especially the applications of predictive modeling techniques in mining electronic health records (EHRs).
