What are your research interests?

My research interest lies in Machine Learning and Data Analytics. I am interested in applying and modifying machine learning techniques to study user behavior and patterns in data. I am also interested in finding and predicting strategies in team works.

What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?

Understanding user behavior and creating models for behavioral patterns that would help to identify different aspects of user behavior. This would help the developers and researchers to have a better understanding of their data and create products according to user experience.

What aspect of what you do is most interesting?

Including real user experience and behavioral models into research work is fascinating in the sense that it helps to understand the human behaviors and thought-process as well as improves user satisfaction for using a product that considers these human aspects.

Where did you study for your undergraduate degree?

I pursued my BS in Computer Science and Engineering at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

What are your research or career goals, going forward?

I would like to continue contributing my knowledge in Academia, Research and Development sectors.
