Welcome, and thank you for taking time to visit my website.

My name is Md Salman Ahmed and I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at Department of Computer Science at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (popularly known as Virginia Tech). I obtained my Master's degree in Computer Science from East Tennesse State University in May 2017.

I worked as both Software Engineer and Senior Software Engineer at Samsung R&D Institute Bangladesh, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics’s Digital Media Communication (DMC) R&D Center. I also worked as a Software Developer Intern at Banc Intranets in Summer, 2016.

I received my bachelor degree in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in February 2013. And finally, I am a very enthusiastic and fast learner. I would like to accept new challenges, dig it up and solve it by my analytic skills with patience.
