I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
I lead the SOFTSEARCH (SOFTware engineering reSEARCH group) lab at SIUC.
My general research interests lie in the area of software engineering.
My research spans peer code review, software security, android security, malware detection, cybersecurity, mining software repositories, empirical software engineering, and social network analysis.
Prior to joining SIU, I was a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech working with Dr. Danfeng (Daphne) Yao. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science under Dr. Jeffrey C. Carver at the University of Alabama in 2015. I received my MS in Computer Science in 2012 from University of Alabama, and Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering in 2006 from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).
