A man looking at the camera.

I am a 2nd year Ph.D. student at ROC-HCI group, University of Rochester, NY supervised by Prof. Ehsan Hoque. My current research is making Large Language Model-driven realistic virtual humans that can hold human-like conversations and creating synthetic data for computer vision.

Prior to this I worked at Department of CSE, BUET on NLP for programming languages.


  • I created Text2App, a framework that can turn a natural language text into functional Android applications.
  • I created an introductory Machine Learning course in my native language Bengali that dives into theory, practice, and intuition behind neural networks. (Email me for free access)
