profile photo edited website 480x640.jpg

I am currently enrolled in a doctoral program at Yale University, working under the supervision of Dr. Aaron Dollar at the Yale GRABLab (Department of Mechanical Engineering and Material Science). My primary research interest is the design of reconfigurable 'cellular' robots.

Previously, I also worked with Dr. Brian Scassellati at the Yale Social Robotics Lab (Department of Computer Science) on the use of non-verbal behaviors in human-robot communication.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Lafayette College, Easton, PA.

I am originally from Dhaka, Bangladesh, and until coming to college in the United States, I have always lived there.

More information about my research projects, publications and side projects can be found in the links above. My complete CV can be accessed here, and a shortened resume can be accessed here.

I am generally quite occupied with the work for my various research and hobby projects. In the free time I do have, I enjoy playing the violin.

I also enjoy learning new things, something the internet makes relatively easy. My current thematic interests include the philosophy of Lao Tsu, recursive logic, and the difficulties of statistical thinking.
