Work Experience

I have worked as a Software Test Engineer for 5 years at my home country (Bangladesh). During this period, I worked with various software solutions in the domain of health care for developmentally disabled individuals, central nervous system patients (ADHD, Alzheimer etc.) and data collection for under-served communities in the rural areas of Bangladesh. I have an affinity towards software automation, which drove me towards incorporating automated tests using state-of-the-art tools like Selenium, JMeter, JUnit, Xamarin Test Cloud etc. As a Graduate Teaching Assistant, I was assigned to CS-222 (Computer Programming for Engineers), CS-262 (Intro to Low Level Programming) and CS-550 (Database Systems). This was an entirely different experience for me. I found the opportunity to help students get a better understanding in computer science is rewarding itself. During the summer of 2020, I worked as a co-mentor for the Aspired Scientists' Summer Internship Program with Professor Thomas LaToza as the mentor. I worked with two under-graduate students for the project, AI Enhanced Presentation Helper. Currently I am working on a project called AutoSeq: Creating automated test sequences for android applications. I am looking forward to starting Graduate Research Assistantship position under Professor Kevin Moran in Spring 2022, and I am very excited about the prospects.
