Biography

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and a Fellow of the HEA. I am the programme leader for the MSc Internet of Things and MSc Big Data Science and Technology programmes. I received my PhD in Computer Science and MSc in Embedded Systems from the University of Hull in 2016 and 2012, respectively. I obtained my BSc degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Professionals. Prior to joining the University of Bradford, I was a Research Associate in the Dependable Intelligent Systems (DEIS) Research Group at the University of Hull. 

My research primarily focuses on safety, reliability, and security assurance and certification of cyber physical autonomous systems. I also have interests in model-based safety analysis, probabilistic risk assessment, dynamic reliability analysis, and stochastic modelling and analysis. I have published over 40 papers in these areas. I have contributed to EU projects on safety, including DEIS and MAENAD. In 2018, I received the research excellence award from the University of Hull.
