I am an IBM-er since 2013. Currently, I am a Senior Cognitive Software Engineer in IBM Research in NY. Previously, I worked as a Senior Software Engineer (June-2015 to September-2015) in IBM Research - Ireland and as a Post Doctoral Researcher (2013-2015) in the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, NY, USA.

My journey in Computer Science before joining IBM

It began at Khulna University, Bangladesh where I studied Computer Science and Engineering as an undergraduate student until 2005. After that I worked in the software industry for 2.5 years (2005-2007). 

At the end of 2007, I received the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship from the European Commission to study a joint dual degree M.Sc., specializing in Computational Linguistics, in Saarland University, Germany and Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy. During my M.Sc., I also worked as a research assistant in the Language Technology Lab of German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI).

At the end of 2009, I was awarded ICT International Doctoral Scholarship from University of Trento, Italy to pursue PhD in Computer Science. I did my research in the Human Language Technology research unit of FBK-irst, Italy. I defended my PhD in April, 2013.

In 2012, I spent 4 months in LIMSI-CNRS, France as a visiting PhD student.
