I am a Research Fellow at Australian National University (ANU), currently hosted by Dr. Hanna Kurniwati. Before joining ANU, I completed my Ph.D. from The University of Queensland (UQ) on September, 2019, under the supervision of Prof. Mandyam V. Srinivasan. My research interests are in computer vision, machine learning, and deep learning. I am particularly interested in the areas of collision avoidance strategies, Robust Decision-making and Learning, and Object detection. Before starting my PhD, I was working as a lecturer at the American International University-Bangladesh (AIUB) - in the department of Computer Science. I also worked as a software engineer at Infra Blue Technology (IBT Games).
