My research interests lie broadly in the domain of Artificial Intelligence (AI) with a specialization in Machine Learning (ML). I am particularly interested in Evolutionary Computation where bio-inspired metaheuristics are used for solving complex optimization problems. I am keen to work on the distributed system for large-scale optimization. My recent focus is on the development of effective learning algorithms for Deep Neural Network and their applications on Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. My research goal is to develop and apply ML in real-world applications and work on Artificial General Intelligence.

About me

I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science (CSE) at the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). I obtained my B.Sc. and MS degree from BUET. I did both of my theses under the supervision of Prof. Monirul Islam. Here is a link to my [curriculm viate]
