About Me


I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science Department at UT San Antonio, working under the supervision of Dr. Xiaoyin Wang. My main interest is improving software development productivity. Some specific areas of interest to me are: continuous integration, software build process, script code analysis, program repair and fault localization, software engineering tools for machine learning (SE4ML), and security vulnaribility analysis for development tools.

Before joining PhD program, I worked in different roles of software engineering. I have 8+ years of industry experience in OOP, Software Quality Assurance, Test Automation, Release Management. I earned my bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Military Institute of Science and Technology(MIST), Bangladesh.

I'm privileged to work with prominent researchers from different sub-fields of computer science, including Na Meng, Lingming Zhang, Nachi Nagappan, Tom Zimmermann, and Ahmed Hassan Awadallah.
