I secured 15th position in SSC and 3rd position in HSC. In 1999, I got admitted into Islamic University of Technology (IUT), Bangladesh, in the Department of Computer Science and Information Technology (CIT) (now CSE). I received my Bachelor's degree in 2003. In 2004, I joined MIU as a lecturer of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) department. I was involved with that department until I started my masters' in Computer and Information Engineering (CIE) at International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) in December, 2006.

I mainly work with Dr. Paolo Casari (my co-supervisor) in Underwater Communication. I was also a member of the Special Interest Group on NETworking (SIGNET) group. I am one of the developers of the DESERT underwater simulator.
