Md Hishamur Rahman

Senior Lecturer
MSc in Civil Engineering (IUT)
BSc in Civil Engineering (IUT)
Room # 314 Ext # 247

Md. Hishamur Rahman completed his BS in Civil Engineering in 2012 from Islamic University of Technology and completed my MS degree in Civil Engineering (Transportation) in 2019 from the same institution. During his master's, he developed spatio-temporal multi-task learning architectures for taxi and ride-hailing systems with anonymized spatial adjacency information.

His research involves the intersection of data science and machine learning to solve problems within the transportation domain, especially problems pertaining to transportation planning, safety, and intelligent transportation systems.
