Hello, there! Welcome to my personal website :) 

I am an Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) Postdoctoral Fellow at DEVCOM US Army Research Laboratory (ARL-West). I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Mississippi State University, USA. I was advised by Professor J. Edward Swan II as part of the Spatial Perception And Augmented Reality Lab (SPAAR Lab). I also completed my M.Sc. in Computer Science at Mississippi State University under the supervision of Dr. Ed Swan. I received my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Chittagong University of Engineering & Technology (CUET), Bangladesh. I worked as a research intern at the University of Southern California (USC) Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) under the lab of DEVCOM US Army Research Laboratory (ARL WEST).

Research interest: 

Current Research: My current research focuses on estimating perceptual depth changes with human visual system components using eye-tracking technology in real, augmented, and virtual reality. My research also concentrates on developing and validating a perceptual imaging technique to improve the clarity of out-of-focus graphical information in Augmented Reality (AR). Another goal of my research is to explore the impact of context switching, focal distance switching, and transient focal blur on human performance in the AR system.
