I lead the Theoretical and Experimental Algorithmics (TEA) Group where we concentrate on both algorithm design and algorithm engineering.
I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Sciences, UT Austin, working with Professor Vijaya Ramachandran, and defending this: "Cache-efficient Algorithms and Data Structures: Theory and Experimental Evaluation".
Prior to joining SBU in 2011, I was in Boston working with Professor Sandor Vajda's Structural Bioinformatics Group at Boston University, and Professor Charles Leiserson's SuperTech Research Group at MIT. Before moving to Boston, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Computational Visualization (CVC), Institute for Computational Engineering & Sciences (ICES), University of Texas at Austin. I worked with Professor Chandrajit Bajaj.
I have a BS in Computer Science & Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology. My undergraduate supervisor was Professor Mohammad Kaykobad.
