About Dr. B

Welcome! I am a data scientist and researcher involved into the design, development and analysis of machine learning algorithms into solving real-world problems in the context of Responsible AI. I am also an educator teaching graduate level breadth courses and under-graduate level technical elective courses covering machine learning, deep learning, reinforcement learning and Bioinformatics. In the computer science department, I run the Machine Learning Laboratory (ML Lab) where I supervise a bunch of undergraduate, MS and PhD students who are working on several collaborative research projects to make a positive difference in the community we live in.

I earned my Ph.D in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2016, my M.S. and B.S. both in Computer Science and Engineering from University of Dhaka in 2009 and 2008 respectively. My schoarly works have been published in MLWA, IEEE/ACM TCBB, BMC Medical Genomics, NetMAHIB, JBCB, BMC Bioinformatics other outlets. Although many of the published works cover problem in genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic domains, later I expanded my research problem area into several other fields including education, human development, cybersecurity, NLP and NLU, medical imaging with the help of a few amazing collaborators and colleagues at CU Denver.


Currently, I’m looking for a competitive graduate student to investigate Data-blind machine learning paradigm. If you are interested, send me an email at ashis.biswas@ucdenver.edu
