[CV]


I am a final year PhD student working with Prof. Raouf Boutaba in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. Before that, I obtained MSc and BSc in Computer Science and Engineering from the Department of CSE, BUET.

Research Interests

My research interests are in computer networks and distributed systems. My research spans Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Software-Defined Networks (SDN), Data Center Networks (DCN), Information-Centric Networks (ICN), and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Networks.
