I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in the department of Information Science at Cornell University. I am a member of the People-Aware Computing Lab and I am thrilled to have Professor Tanzeem Choudhury as my advisor. I have also received a Google Ph.D. Fellowship in Mobile Computing in 2016.
My current research focuses on developing novel ubiquitous and mobile health sensing technologies that (1) capture observable low-level physical signals from our bodies and surrounding environments in the form of acoustic and electromagnetic waves, (2) map them to relevant biological and behavioral measurements, and (3) employ a deep understanding of new applied physics theory, signal processing and machine learning techniques to rethink the core physical mechanisms of existing health sensing technologies. My research lies at the intersection of applied physics, signal processing, machine learning, embedded and mobile computing, medicine and health sciences.
I received my M.S. in Electrical Engineering from University of Texas at Dallas and B.S. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.
