Every step in life is important. It is hard to predict where you will go but your current step will reaches you towards the goal.
I grew up in a family where education, patience, mutual respect and hard work were treated as the main assets to being a good human. As well as the right way to achieve success in life . My parents as teachers propelled my self growth encouraging my dreams and individuality. I thank them for the great start in life and feel pride in being their son. My wife and kids also bring the love and joy into my life that teaches me further about family and meaning.
Community service as well as helping in Feed the Hungry programs, non profits, and local environmental clean ups and beautification that enriches my locality, gives me joy and humility. For social balance and physical health I enjoy the following: tennis, fishing, hiking, soccer, cricket, golf, travel, concerts, and boating.
Now I live in Pullman, WA, USA. I like this place very much because it is quiet and full of green. People of this territory are gentle, polite and affable.
My academic and professional details are in my resume.
Brain is an amazing part of every living creature. It controls the actions as well as emotions. Family is everything for me. It is the very first place to train our brain using customs, values and manners. Over the time, we adjust our non-linear learning curve based on surrounding knowledge. I love all the institutions from where I get chance to acquire knowledge. I also love those individuals who help me to get through.
I have completed my Ph.D. from Washington State University, USA in August, 2020. I inaugurated here at Fall, 2015. My reseach focused on subgraph mining and visual analytics. During my research, I developed an exploratory data analysis tool named HYPPO–X that explore the high order structure of data in a form of graph. This graph is a topological representation of the data. I also developed algorithms on structural graph properties (path and flare) to identify divergent subpopulation besides resilient subpopulation.
BUET is the most prestigious university in Bangladesh for Engineering and technology. Each year only 1400 students get admitted after a very tough and competitive examination. I admitted in BUET in Computer Science and Engineering department in March 2004. I completed my graduation (B.Sc.) in March 2009.
It was a different journey. The study pattern is totally different than elementary and high school. I enjoyed the years a lot. I made many friends.
Notre Dame college (High school equivalents in US) is one of the most prestigious college in Bangladesh. Each year nearly 2000 students get admitted after a very competitive examination. According to historical statistics, each student of this institution is very successful in his professional life.
The study technique of teachers of this institution is very interactive. The innovative teaching styles of teachers attracted me a lot. My most favorite teachers are Jaharlal Sarkar Sir and Nimai Chandra Dey Sir. Both of these Mathematicians helped me to understand mathematics in a very different angle. The teacher named Mizanur Rahman is a marvelous teacher in Biology. I learned a lot about biology, science and general life. Sushanto sir explained the physics in such a way that we could visualize the physical interaction and relation of objects.
Jamalpur Zila School is the best school in the Jamalpur district in Bangladesh, where I born and grown up. I feel proud to be a part of it. My mainstream educational journey started here. I spend my early 9 years here. Lots of memory and events are surrounded with this institute. This is the first institution where we made more closer friendship with classmates that remains throughout the life.
The educational infrastructure is very strict to maintain a standard here, even though we are very far from capital. I feel lucky because we were taught by fantastic teachers. Their moral values and customs are very influential to follow. Their strictness and zero tolerance on bad manners helped us to prepare for a decent life.
2020 early spring and summer is the most memorable time in my life. I along with my family is passing through a pandemic which is caused by a virus of corona group named COVID-19. The number 19 refers the first occurrence year which is 2019. The whole world is captured by this virus and it already kills few hundreds of thousands life. It affects the world economy so badly that people of all sectors are already suffering, even though government is continuously providing financial support but it is really hard to provide proper support for a single government. Due to the downgrading of business, the job market started collapsing in different domains which badly impacts on my early career after graduation.
2019 summer was another memorable summer in my life. I got internship chance in one the leading tech company named Amazon AWS. I joined as an Applied scientist Intern in the field of Machine Learning. All the team members along with my Manager and Mentor were very open minded and friendly. We had lots of fun besides works, for instance, boat picnic, weekly happy hour, etc. Everyone here are so obsessed about to make happy to their customer. I really like and enjoy the concept.
I had opportunity to handle huge volume (peta byte level) of data. Faced challenges to deal with this size of data but learned a lot on this.
I got opportunity to explore other domains, for instance, economic, product management. I applied the concept of those domain in my data analysis which ended up building a much better forecasting model on sales data.
2018 summer was a memorable summer in my life. I successfully completed my preliminary examination. I also joined in the high performance computing lab in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory as a Ph.D. intern. My responsibilities include:
KBGroup is a multinational software company whose software development branches located in Bangladesh, United Kingdom and New Zealand. I worked in Bangladesh branch from 2010 to 2015. This company provides eTicketing solutions for theaters, sports, and online shopping. It also develops solution for insurance company.
