Update: My Ph.D. Commencement video. Soon I am going to start working for a start-up. This webpage will no longer be updated.

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University. I obtained my MS in Computer Science from the University of Toronto in 2004 and my BS in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2002. I also received a Master degree from Cornell University. I was awarded University Gold Medal and Sharfuddin Gold Medal from BUET for obtaining the highest CGPA in the entire university and in my department, respectively. My research interest is in the area of 3-D networks, wireless networks and underwater sensor networks. I am also interested in quantitative finance and I have finished my Ph.D. minor in Finance.
