About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Information Systems Department at University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), advised by Dr. James Foulds. I am also working as a research assistant in the Foulds Research Group - The Latent Lab.

I was an intern in the wavelet development team at MathWorks Inc., Natick, MA for Summer, 2019. Prior to joining UMBC as a graduate student, I worked in Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Ltd. as a Core Network Engineer. Before that, I received my Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering at University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, supervised by Prof. Zahid H. Mahmood.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in the general area of machine learning and artificial intelligence, particularly in the area of AI Fairness and Ethics. My work is focused on building socially conscious and fair algorithms for machine learning, deep learning, recommender systems and natural language processing.
