PROFILE


SHORT BIOGRAPHY

I am serving as an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics at Jahangirnagar University from December 2019. Earlier I worked at the same place as an Assistant Professor from August 2009 and before that, I was a Lecturer from June 2006. I started the journey of my professional life as a Lecturer from The Daffodil International University in September 2004. Meanwhile, I have completed my PhD in Computer Science from The University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK under the supervision of Professor Neil D Lawrence. At The University of Sheffield, I worked as a Demonstrator from 2012 to 2018. I completed my Master's degree in Human Language Technology and Interfaces (HLTI) under the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science at The University of Trento, Italy. I received my B.Sc. (Honors) degree from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh. For my academic excellence, I was awarded two gold medals, one from the Prime Minister of Bangladesh and another from the President of Bangladesh. I am a life member of the Bangladesh Electronics Society. I have authored two books and a number of journal articles and conference papers.

My fields of research interest are Machine Learning, Data modelling, and Computational Biology. At ML@SITraN, The University of Sheffield, UK I worked on Gaussian process models from Gene Expression Data.
