I started my Ph.D. at the University of Arizona in Fall 2022. My current research topic is developing an efficient Outlier/Anomaly detection method. Outlier detection has many applications in various real-world domains, including machine learning.

Apart from research, I was born and raised in Bangladesh, a beautiful South Asian country. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Computer Science from American International University-Bangladesh(AIUB). After my Master's, I worked as Lecturer for a few years at that same University.
