About

I am a second-year PhD student in the UCLA Graphics and Vision Lab, advised by Professor Demetri Terzopoulos.

My research interests are in medical image analysis, machine learning, computer vision, and visualization. I am particularly interested in deep learning, especially applied to medical image analysis.

Before starting my PhD, I received an MS in Computer Science degree from Delaware State University (DSU) in 2016 and a Bachelor in Computer Science and Engineering degree from Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology (RUET), Bangladesh in 2012.

Previously, I worked in the Medical Imaging and Simulation (MEDIS) Lab at DSU, jointly advised by Professor David Pokrajac (DSU) and Professor Predrag Bakic (UPenn).
