I have been working as a Teaching/Research Assistant after joining as a Ph.D. student at the Department of Computer Science, the University of Houston since Fall-2019. My primary research interest is in Cyber Deception, IoT Security, Privacy, Data Analytics & ML, and the Cloud-IoT ecosystem. I started my journey in the research arena in 2016 and have been publishing my ideas and works since then.

Currently, I am researching Cyber Deception and Adversarial Reconnaissance. Now, we are working on modeling attacker behavior inside a compromised network. In another project, I have been working on IoT Remote Attestation where we have built an IoT testbed for researching software vulnerabilities, exploitation, and attestation techniques such as memory checksum, CFI, etc. We have presented the first game-theoretic analysis of remote attestation and now we are working on a multiagent learning-based model.

Before joining UH, I worked as a lecturer in the Dept. of CSE, Green University of Bangladesh. I like to collaborate with other researchers, and together we have been working on projects and publications. I also like to have hands-on experiences in System Administration, which made me take part in RHCSA, RHCE, Openstack, CCNA, etc vendor courses, and exams. I intend to gather more knowledge that covers the topics of DevSecOps.
