Hi, there!

I’m Saif Mahmud, a first year Ph.D. student in Computing and Information Science at Cornell University. I am a member of SciFi Lab and advised by Prof. Cheng Zhang. My research interest lies broadly in the area of ubiquitous computing, machine learning and human computer interaction.

Previously, I worked as a researcher at AGenCy Lab where my works were supervised by Prof. Amin Ahsan Ali and Prof. A K M Mahbubur Rahman. I received my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Dhaka.
