Md Yusuf Sarwar Uddin

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).

[I am currently on leave as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Irvine. I am working at Distributed Systems Middleware (DSM) group under Prof Nalini Venkatasubramanian.]

I completed my PhD from Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA.

My research interests lie in the broader areas of ​ systems and networking​ . I love to design, program and build networked systems and formally analyze their operation and performance using sound theory and algorithmic tools (e.g., optimization, probabilistic modeling), especially when they operate under resource-constrained settings. My specific research focus is on distributed computing applied in the areas of Internet of Things (IoT), cyber-physical systems (CPS), mobile computing, and data-driven (Big Data) systems.

In my PhD (under Prof. Tarek Abdelzaher), I worked on networking protocols and services for disruption-tolerant networks tailored for disaster response scenarios, with special emphasis on in-network content distillation problems, such as redundancy reduction techniques in crowd-sourced media data gathered from people-centric sensor networks.

I obtained my Bachelor and Masters both in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in the year 2004 and 2006 respectively. Earlier, I was a student of Chittagong College and Bangladesh Bank Colony High School, Chittagong. I was born and raised in Chittagong, the beautiful sea-side city of Bangladesh (aka, the port city).

I am a Fulbright Scholar and was a recipient of the International Fulbright Science and Technology Fellowship in 2007.
