Graduate Research & Teaching AssistantDept. of ESEUniversity of Calgary

I am a graduate research & teaching assistant at the University of Calgary, Canada. Previously, I served as a full-time Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Ahsanullah University of Science & Technology.

I am currently doing my M.Sc. at the Department of Electrical and Software Engineering of the University of Calgary. I have completed my B.Sc. in CSE from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).

My research interests are Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, & Software Engineering. Currently, I am working on the application of ML and NLP-based techniques to improve the software development and maintenance process. I have also worked in the fields of computational bio and social sciences.

Projects [GitHub link]

This project aims to explore various machine learning approaches for detecting toxic comments. We study Naive Bayes, Decision Tree, Logistic Regression, K Nearest Neighbors, NB-LR, Convolutional Neural Networks, Long Short-Term Memory Networks, Bi-directional Long Short-Term Memory Networks on identifying toxicity in text.
  • Autonomous Code Review Usefulness Measurement [code]

This project aims to build an automated system which measures usefulness of code reviews.An system that detects driver attention by tracking head orientation and eye gaze to prevent road accidents resulting from driver inattentiveness. It takes and executes basic voice commands. It was built using Raspberry Pi, Python OpenCV libraries, PyAudio and Google Speech Recognition.A web based application where people can sign up using their national ID card and submit any complaint of their own locality which will be seen by authority concerned. It was developed using PHP, and Android Web View.An automated system to save electricity by human detection through Passive Infrared (PIR) sensor and automated regulation of electronic devices which was built using Atmega32.
  • Exploring different graph algorithms using graph database (NOSql OrientDB) [code]

Different graph algorithms were explored using OrientDB graph database.Typical dx-ball game developed using Assembly 8086.A multiplayer online version of Pac-Man, which I built with Java.A shooting game which was developed using C and C++.
