I am Soumik Nafis Sadeek and have currently been pursuing my Masters degree at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech), Japan under Integrated Graduate Program A (Masters + PhD) awarded with MEXT scholarship since October, 2020. I have completed my B.Sc in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Islamic University of Technology (IUT), a subsidiary organ of OIC. I was also involved with M.Sc program at IUT too.

My specific research area is Transportation Engineering. I am involved with research in a cross-domain of engineering, social science, and psychology. My main interest in research is to develop Statistical Learning Theory to infer causality in various models dealt with transportation, logistics and supply chain management. I use both qualitative and quantitative data as an input in my research area. My ultimate focus is to develop efficient modeling methods and computational tools that would deal with uncertainty in policy making.

Specialization: Transportation Economics, Econometrics, Machine Learning, Sequential Decision Analytics and Last-mile Logistics Distribution.
