I am Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Cyber-ShAER at UTEP. I graduated with a PhD from the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech in Fall 2013. My thesis titled Integrating Community with Collections in Educational Digital Libraries was co-advised by Professors Clifford A. Shaffer and Edward A. Fox. During my PhD I worked on the AlgoViz and Ensemble projects - two educational digital libraries for computing education. My research interest includes data modeling and representation, data and information management, digital libraries, online communities, and data mining.

I completed my Masters at Montana State University, Bozeman. I am from Bangladesh where I did my undergrad at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology.

Aside from my research, I assisted in outreach programs for various groups (www.computingportal.org/outreach). I was also involved in mentor programs including MAP and REU programs. While at VT, I served as a co-chair in the Association for Women in Computing for the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC) and the Tennessee chapter of GHC.
