About me


I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh since April 2019. Before that, I served the same department as a Lecturer. I also initiate and direct a research group named Cognitive Agents and Interaction Lab (CAIL) at the University of Dhaka.

I have received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Southampton, UK in 2018 under the supervision of Prof. Nick Jennings CB, FREng and Dr Long Tran-Thanh. Prior to this, I have completed my MS and BSc in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Dhaka in 2012 and 2010, respectively. During the time, I was supervised by Prof. Md. Mamun-or-Rashid.

I am particularly interested in conducting research in the field of Distributed Artificial Intelligence, often recognised as Multi-Agent Systems. Specifically, my research focuses on developing distributed decision making algorithms to deal with constraints in cooperative or competitive multi-agent systems. I also explore the real-world impact of research and have been involved with deployment of such systems in domains such as disaster response, citizen science, etc.
