Me, myself and my research...

 About Me

Welcome everyone. I am a Research Assistant at the School of Computing Science of the University of Glasgow. I am currently working in a project called the Integrated Integrated Multimedia City Data (iMCD). This is part of an ongoing ESRC funded Urban Big Data Centre, Glasgow under the umbrella of Big Data Theme. I am responsible for conducting research and developing systems for collating a large collection of textual and multimedia data from online news sources, microblogs, social sharing sites such as Youtube & flickr and wearable sensors such as life-loggers and GPS devices and then to analyse this data set to make sense.

Before that I have been a SICSA(Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance) Funded, PhD student of at the University of Glasgow. I have recently submitted my PhD dissertation. The topic of my PhD disseration is "Identity Management using Mobile Devices" in which I have investigated how  modern smartphones, ever increasing in power and size, can be used for managing our online identities. My primary supervisor is Dr. Ron Poet and secondary supervisor is Dr. Gethin Norman.

I am originally from Bangladesh, a beautiful south-asian country. I did my Bachelor in Computer Science & Engineering from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at ShahJalal University of Science & Technology, Bangladesh. I have a double masters in Security and Mobile Computing from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway and University of Tartu, Estonia. I was awarded with the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Scholarship  to pursue my masters study.

I have several years of research and development experiences on Identity Management, Petname Systems, Trust Management and Applied Security in general.

My latest Résumé can be found here.

Citations of my papers can be found in my Google Scholar Profile.

I have developed an Android app to browse the contents of Even though the app is rudimentary, it has some good features:
  • It allows to save your favourite CFP right into your Android phone, and
  • You can add the deadline of a specific CFP right into your Google Calendar.
You can download the app from here.

I maintain a list of major security conferences with their dates, locations, submission deadlines and URLs. The list is updated on a bi-weekly basis. The list can be found here.

More about my research and publication can be found in other pages. If you have any queries, feel free to contact me.
