F A Rezaur Rahman Chowdhury

I am a PhD Candidate at Washington State University, where I work on using Machine Learning to Scale Up Combinatorial Algorithms with applications to Graph Analytics, Genomics, and Life Sciences.

My advisor is Dr. Jana Doppa. I've spent time at Summer 2017 in Google NYC with Speaker Identification team. I have also worked at TigerIT Bangladesh Ltd and Eyeball Networks Inc. I did my bachelors at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.

Research

I'm interested in applying Machine Learning to Scale Up Combinatorial Algorithms. Some of the Application domains are Graph Analytics, Genomics, and Life Sciences. My research requires usage of Imitation Learning, Deep Learning, Reinforcecment Learning. I have also worked on using Attention based models in Deep Neural Network to improve Text-Dependent Speaker Verification.
