I am a researcher in the Adaptive Systems and Interactions group at Microsoft Research, Redmond. My primary research interests are in Attention Management for Multitasking Domains, but I am also interested in technology for task flow across devices, health care, and ICTD.
I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2008. I received a Masters in Computer Science from the same university in 2005 and a Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in 2001.
