Overview

I am an Advanced Queensland Research Fellow at the School of ITEE of the University of Queensland (UQ). My fellowship is jointly sponsored by the State of Queensland through the Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation, UQ, and Redback Technologies Ltd, Australia. Prior joining UQ, I was at SUTD as a Research Scientist of SUTD-MIT International Design Centre (IDC) from March 2015 to July 2017, and as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow of Engineering Product Development Pillar from September 2013 to February 2015. My previous employment also includes Visiting Research at NICTA, Australia (January 2013 - June 2013), Visiting Student Research Collaborator at Princeton University, USA (Summer 2011), and Lecturer at Presidency University, Dhaka (June 2007 - March 2009).

I received my B.Sc. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2007, and the Ph.D. degree in Engineering from the Australian National University (ANU) in 2013.

The detail of my research activities can be found on my personal homepage.
