“If not now, when? If not you, who?”
― Hillel the Elder
My research centers on understanding and modeling human behavior in the healthcare domain. I believe that there is an opening to push the boundaries of computational modeling in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) by modeling behaviors of people based on the data collected from people’s mobile, smart wearable devices, and their instrumented environments. I envision modeling human behavior, which can acquaint the design of prospective user interfaces that reason about and act in response to those behaviors to help people improve the quality of their life and wellbeing.
I work in domains of Applied Machine Learning, Computational Modeling, and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). My primary focus of work is to analyze how activities and behaviors of patients correlate with their disease symptoms and how technology can coach them to modify their complex routines to be productive, healthy, and safe. My future goal is to infer how Behavior Data Analytics and Computational Interaction can be used to design advanced Behavior-aware User Interfaces that will infer user goals, predict future user actions, describe common user behaviors, and even coach users.
I have finished my B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) from the University of Dhaka. Before joining University of Michigan as a PhD student, I have worked as a visiting researcher in Yagi Lab, Osaka University, ISIR.
