I'm a researcher primarily working with various aspects of blockchain technology. I have diverse, yet well-connected research experiences gathered from three nations in the British and Irish Isles: Ireland, Scotland and England. I presently hold a Research Associate position in the Open Blockchain group at the Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) of the Open University where I investigate the problems of blockchain learning verifications as well use-cases that can be fit into this new and innovative technology. Beside blockchain, I also have a keen interest in Wireless Networks, Internet of Things (IoT), Privacy & Trust and Data Science. Prior to my current position, I completed two other postdocs, one at the KMi and the other in the Department of Computing and Communication in the same university where I worked in the Strategic Data Science project and smart city project MK-Smart respectively.
I obtained my PhD from the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow in Scotland, as a recipient of the Scottish ORS Scholarship in conjunction with the Glasgow University College of Science and Engineering Scholarship. I was also a research scholar at the School of Computer Science in Trinity College Dublin where I received Govt. of Ireland IRCSET Embark Initiative Scholarship. My earlier background is in Computer Science and Engineering at East West University, Bangladesh where I pursued a bachelor and a masters degree with Gold Medal distinction.
