I am a Postdoctoral Associate at Indiana University Bloomington supervised by Prof. David Crandall.

I received my Ph.D in 2018 from George Mason University. My advisor was Prof. Jana Kosecka. My research focus lies in areas of Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Robotics. Particularly, I am interested in the understanding of the semantic and geometric structure of a scene by utilizing the depth (e.g., Kinect sensor) and image data. I am always excited to work in inter-disciplinary researches where computer vision and machine learning can have positive impact. Prior to joining George Mason University, I completed my MS in Computer Science from the Drexel University in 2011. I finished my B.Sc. in Computer Science & Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2007.
