Rahmatullah Roche

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. My advisor is Dr. Debswapna Bhattacharya. I completed my Master's in Computer Science and Software Engineering at Auburn Univerisity (2021), and my bachelor's in Computer Science and Engineering at Bangladesh Univerisity of Engineering and Technology (BUET) (2016).

I'm interested in machine learning, bioinformatics, optimization, big data analysis, and human computer interaction. My current research mainly focuses on AI-driven protein folding.
