Md P. Mahmud


Ph.D. in Computer Science, Rutgers, May 2014.
Now: Senior software engineer, Google, Inc.


Md Pavel Mahmud received his B.Sc. in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology and his PhD in computer science from Rutgers University.

He is working on computing reduced representations of massive next generation sequencing data sets and finding ways to utilize the reduced representations for downstream analysis. He has previously worked on speeding up Bayesian analysis of Hidden Markov Models and their applications on detecting copy number variations. He has also developed fast sampling techniques for Hidden Markov Models with discrete valued observations.
