I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering in the College of Engineering at the University of Colorado Denver. Prior to joining here, I was a lecturer at University of Dhaka from 2010 to 2011. I obtained B.Sc. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from University of Dhaka in 2008 and 2009. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from The University of Texas at Arlington, Texas in 2016 under the supervision of Professor Jean X. Gao.

I am looking for motivated students interested in my research. Please email me your CV if you are interested.

Research Interests

My main research areas are Machine learning, Data mining, Big Data analysis, and Bioinformatics. The goal of my research is to develop novel algorithms to solve problems from these areas while respecting the underlying problem structures and presenting with scalable platforms that can handle massive, heterogeneous data-sets. My current research projects are on the following fields:

  • Machine learning, Data Mining, Big data analysis

    • Ensemble learning, Matrix Completion algorithms, Multi-label learning, Recommender systems, Sparse learning, Graph mining

    • Cross-language text analysis

  • Bioinformatics

    • High Throughput Sequencing (HTS) (a.k.a Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)), eQTL epistasis, SNP, CNV, GWAS data analysis

    • Non-coding RNA – disease association study

    • Cancer data analysis to contribute in the advancement of precision medicine
