My research interests are in the fields of Distributed Systems, Cloud Computing, Social Networks, and Cyber-Physical Systems. I am working with Prof. Tarek Abdelzaher in the Cyber-Physical Systems Lab. Presently I am working in the project Apollo. Apollo is a generic platform for deriving facts from raw crowd-sourced data. In this project, we employ Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE) and Machine Learning techniques to infer truth, asses credibility, recognize events, and collaborations from what people are sharing and re-sharing over social media.
I have received both my master's and bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in 2011 and 2009, respectively. I have worked on ''The Sybil Attack'' in Distributed Hash Tables with Dr. Reaz Ahmed. We have proposed an admission control scheme which exploits trust recommendation latent in the social network to place a node in the appropriate position of a hierarchical DHT, having logarithmic routing properties. I have also worked with Dr. Ashikur Rahman focuses on ''Load Aware Optimized Broadcasting in Mobile Ad hoc Networks,'' a solution to a previously unexplored problem caused by unbalanced load distribution of broadcast traffic in wireless ad hoc networks. I am an Awardee of IEEE ICC 2009 Student Travel Grant for that research.
I have worked as a lecturer in the same department from 2009 to 2011. I have instructed courses including Computer Graphics, Operating Systems, Simulation and Modeling, Wireless Networking, Algorithms, Database. Quickest way to reach me is via e-mail tanviralamin at gmail dot com
