I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia, working with prof. Yuan Tian. I completed my masters of computer science from University of Virginia. My research interest lies in the intersection of security & privacy with cyber-physical systems, medical healthcare, software engineering, and machine learning. I am especially interested in data-driven security and privacy analysis in cross-platform interaction of emerging systems and platforms. The goal of my research is to measure the attack surface of the IoT platforms, analyze privacy leakages among inter-connected home automation applications, privacy leakages in medical healthcare, and investigate the enforcement of privacy policies. My research findings are acknowledged by several well-known companies (such as., Google) and resulted in the publishing of several CVEs. I am fortunate to receive a few awards and recognition during his Ph.D., including- CPS Rising Stars, UVA endowed graduate fellowship award, Link Lab outstanding graduate research award, travel grants from the Web conference, IEEE CNS, and BlackHat USA.
Before joining as a grad student, I was a software engineer (in security lab) at Kona Software Lab ltd in Bangladesh. I have completed my bachelor’s degree from the Computer Science and Engineering department of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in 2016.
