As an ardent computer enthusiast, I would like
to pursue a career starting with a Masters degree leading to Ph.D. BMS1 in
the field of Computer Architecture and
Compilers or Networking and
Distributed Systems. My academic performance, brief exposure to research,
tutoring opportunity and inquisitiveness BMS2 led
me to believe that I will thrive in the field I have mentioned above.


At present I am in the process of finishing
writing my undergraduate thesis on the “Huffman Code” under the supervision
of Professor M. Kaykobad. Arithmetic encryption and compression are now
the most widely used techniques but the Huffman Code could achieve both
simultaneously. I have proposed a new variant of the Huffman Code to be used
for this purpose. However, the main problem with any Huffman Code is the huge
overhead associated with sending the tree and symbols. Some excellent work has
already been done to minimize bits associated with sending the tree by a good
factor. I am exploring the properties of Huffman Tree for further minimization
of bits. I am also researching towards using Huffman Coding in public-key
cryptosystems. Though disproved later, an algorithm like Knapsack was used in
public cryptography. So it might be possible that other algorithmic systems can
be used for public-key cryptography as well.

During my undergraduate research I found that I
had to spend most of the time studying Cryptography and Number Theory instead
of conducting research. An in-depth knowledge in these subjects can only be gained
by further studies in an intellectually stimulating environment. My short but
intense experiences as a C/C++ course instructor and research experience have
emboldened my aim to pursue career in academia/research. This
is where I can quench my thirst in knowledge and help others to learn and
educate at the same time.


During my undergraduate years at BUET, I was a
leading member of a team that successfully carried out several course projects.
We applied an innovative approach towards ALU design that used significantly
fewer gates than generally required. We also implemented a Metal detector
(first of its kind implemented in our department) dealing in digitizing
frequency. I have also worked with similar ease individually. Though I was more
comfortable with Java at that time, I programmed in Visual C/C++ in a project
to get myself well acquainted with its tools and environment, and hence enhance
my skills.


I had to utilize the limited resources available
in the university to maximize the exposure and theoretical research was one of
the best options that I could benefit at its maximum. I found theoretical work
very challenging and stimulating. Our department also has a very competitive
environment, so on and off campus we make an effort to excel our expertise. As
a result I learned programming languages and accustomed myself to environments
like ASP, Visual Studio, HTML and Linux beyond the course requirements. I
actively participated in programming contests and eagerly sought teaching jobs
in the growing ICT field.


I have been always
fascinated by the way a computer works to transform a complex program code into
action. Both the computer architecture and the compiler classes were very
compelling to me.  But, some reading
materials in the Internet made me realize that what we studied was very basic
and primitive considering the robustness of these fields.  And even though new ideas are coined here
regularly there are many aspects to explore further in great detail. During the
recent years many futuristic architectural improvements have been proposed to
make the computer serve us better. As a result novel strategies are also
essential in compiler technology to adapt to new structure. With distributed
and parallel computing, compilers need to be exploited beyond the traditional
approach.  The ongoing research projects
in UIUC, related to Computer Architecture and Compilers, are very
thrilling and innovative. I am following the development of some projects like GRACE,
RSIM and PCL through the Internet.
