I am a first year PhD student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I am fortunate to be advised by Professor Shlomo Zilberstein in the Resource Bounded Reasoning Lab. Previously, I was a Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology from January 2021 and a full-time Research Assistant at Cognitive Agents and Interaction Lab (CAIL), University of Dhaka., where I worked on Multi-Agent Systems. Before joining the lab, I was an undergrad at the CSE department, University Of Dhaka. My current research interest includes:

  • Multi-agent Systems (Coordination and Planning, Multi-agent RL, Game Theory).
  • Human AI Interaction
  • AI for Social Impact and Computational Sustainability (Game Theory and RL for social good).
