I am pursuing a PhD in Computer Science under the supervison of Professor Tom Maibaum. I did my MS in Computer Science at St. Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia, Canada and BSc in Computer Science and Engineering at Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology (CUET). I worked with Professor Wendy MacCaull in MS program and funding was supported by NSERC Industrial Postgraduate Scholarship (IPS). My research interests lie in the intersection of Ontologies and Semantic Web, Multi-Agent Systems, and Formal Methods.
