I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. My advisor is Dr. Na Meng, and my current work focuses on boosting the efficiency of parallel software development through the automated detection and resolution of merge conflicts in branch based-development workflows. In general, my research interest lies in the fields of software engineering and machine learning.
Prior to starting my graduate studies, I have completed my undergraduate studies from North South University (Bangladesh), where I have worked under the supervision of Dr. Hasan U. Zaman for my final capstone project.
