I am a Research Scientist at IBM Research in the System and Cloud Security group. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Virginia Tech supervised by Prof. Daphne Yao and I was former member of Yao Group. My research focuses on developing deployable tools with concrete methodologies and metrics to quantify and measure security assurance as well as improve cloud security.
I also worked on the automation and security of connected vehicle technology and the development of platform tools for embedded (e.g., smartwatches) and mobile devices. I obtained my bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (2013). I also worked as both Software and Senior Software Engineer at Samsung R&D.
In my free time, I like to play soccer and cricket!
