About Me

I am currently an Applied Scientist at Amazon working on localization, maps, and geo-related projects at the Last Mile Technology group. I obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in 2017. I worked with Professor Jakob Eriksson at BITS Networked Systems Laboratory. I completed my BS in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).
