Biography

I graduated with PhD in Computational Analysis and Modeling (2013) from Louisiana Tech University, Ruston, USA. Prior that, I received MS and BSc in Computer Science and Engineering from University of Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2008 and 2006 respectively. I received MS in Mathematics (2011) and MS in Computer Science (2013) from Louisiana Tech University. Before joining SVSU in 2013, I was working as a research assistant between March, 2009 to February, 2013 at Center for Secure Cyberspace at Louisiana Tech University.

My research interests include detecting and mitigating cyber-behavioral anomalies, behavioral biometrics, machine learning, knowledge discovery from data, image processing and human activity detection from video. I am a member of IEEE and ACM.
