About me:

I am a PhD student in Computer Science, University of Massachussetts Amherst. I started my PhD in Fall 2021. I have completed my MSc and BSc in Computer Science from University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. I am currently working on Fairness of machine learning and software models with Prof. Yuriy Brun. How different machine learning models may produce results which can be regarded as unfair to certain users and how the models can be designed in a way that they satisfy user-defined constraints to ensure fairness –are main focus of my research now.
