I grew up in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Before coming to UofA, I worked as a Research Assistant in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) from November 2018 to July 2021. I have completed my M.Sc. and B.Sc. in CSE from BUET in August 2021 and October 2018 respectively.

I want to have a research career in Computer Science possessing effective and dynamic research skills along with proficient technical skills. Here, at UofA, my research interest during my Ph.D. mainly lies in Security.
