Past research experience

Research Assistantship:

*Research Assistant to Tahera Yesmin, Assistant Professor, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. (2010)

Relevant publication: Determination of optimal ordering quantity and reduction of bullwhip effect in a multistage supply chain using genetic algorithm

I wrote code in C++ of Genetic algorithm (GA) and simulated annealing and helped the professor to run the simulation and find an optimal solution for a multistage supply chain's ordering quantity. I was instrumental in pointing out to professors that, lower range chromosomes produce better results, which resulted in a major contribution of that paper.

*Research Assistant to Seratun Jannat, Assistant Professor, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. (2009)

Relevant publication: Optimal Solution for Multi-Objective Facility Layout Problem Using Genetic Algorithm

I wrote code in C++ of Genetic algorithm (GA) and helped the professor to run the simulation and find an optimal solution for Multi-Objective Facility Layout.

*Research Assistant to Nouroz Islam, Lecturer, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, (2008)

Relevant publication: Fuzzy optimisation of multi-objective job shop scheduling based on inventory information

I wrote code in C++ of Genetic algorithm (GA) and helped the lecturer to run the simulation and find an optimal solution for Multi-Objective job shop scheduling. Simulated Annealing was used and two results were compared.
