BIO

I am a CS master’s student at University of Saskatchewan, supervised by Professor Michael Horsch and Roy Ka-wei Lee. My research interests lies in the intersection of NLP and Computational Social Science. My recent work has focused on hate speech detection, low-resource NLP and transfer learning.

Before moving to Canada, I worked at Goava as a software engineer. I completed bachelor in Computer Science at Noakhali Science and Technology University.

This site double as my personal blog. Posts range from computer science to my perspectives on life and absurdity. In my free hours, I like reading paperbacks, cooking, and blogging sometimes.
