About me

I am a 4th year Ph.D. student in the department of Computer Science (CS) at Purdue University, West Lafayette. My advisor is Dr. Dan Goldwasser. My research interest broadly lies in Social media mining and analysis with Natural Language Processing. The information provided in super-connected media is often shaped by people’s underlying lifestyle, well-being, health related choices and motivations, which may attract specific stakeholders to advance their interests to interact with potential users by adapting their messaging. I am interested in characterizing user types and messagings on social media.

Working towards this goal, I study the following topics: (1) Understanding people’s well-being & lifestyle choices and analyzing their motivation behind this from social media data [ICWSM 2022] [ICWSM 2021] . (2) Analyzing microtargeting patterns corresponding to changes in messaging depending on demographic information [ICWSM 2023] [AIES 2023] [IEEE Big Data 2022] . (3) Opinion and morality frame analysis on vaccine debate [NAACL 2022].

I obtained M.Sc. in Computer Science (CS) from Old Dominion University (ODU) in August 2018. I worked with Dr. Mohammad Zubair, Dr. Desh Ranjan and Dr. Harold Riethman to develop computational method for improved region-specific assembly for human genome [ISBRA 2018] [TCBB 2019] [BIBE 2019]. I also worked with Dr. Jing He to generate method to quantify twist of β-strands in secondory structure of protein [JCB 2018] [ACM-BCB 2017]. Prior to joining ODU, I was working as a Software Developer in the R&D team of Dohatec New Media for two years. I completed my B.Sc in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) department from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in year 2013.
