Bio

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Computer Science at the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). I am working with Professor John Zimmerman to explore the applicability of AI in the Intensive Care Unit. I will be joining the CS department at Dartmouth College as a tenure-track assistant professor in July 2021.

I develop data-driven, knowledge-integrated information extraction and fusion systems to provide personalized decision support. Specifically, my research focuses on inferring the context and semantics of data generated from human-in-the-loop systems. The contextual and semantic information is combined with domain knowledge to increase the corresponding application's safety and effectiveness through personalized decision support. I develop new natural language processing, knowledge extraction, and machine learning solutions to achieve these goals.

Some of my primary research projects include (i) multi-modal conflict detection and prediction for assistive health applications, (ii) identifying unsafe health information, (iii) predictive modeling and anomaly detection of human behavior, and (iv) developing wearable intelligent assistant to provide real-time decision support to emergency responders.

I have received my Ph.D. in CS from the University of Virginia's Department of Computer Science in August 2020, where I was advised by Professor John A. Stankovic. I have completed my Master's in Computer Science at UVa in 2015. Before coming to UVa, I served as a lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). I received my Bachelor's degree from the Department of CSE, BUET in 2013 and graduated summa cum laude.
