About

My Name is Mizanur Rahman, and I am a Research Assistant

I'm a PhD student in computer science at Florida International University. Currently I’m working in Cyber Security and Privacy Research Lab and advised by Professor Bogdan Carbunar. My research interest consists of internet data privacy, detecting different types of frauds in social network and user experience analysis. Currently I am monitoring different social media and app markets for detecting different kinds of anomalies specially fake reviews and malware. We are trying to use different machine learning approaches to detect the nature of the deception.

Earlier I worked as handheld device (Android & iPhone) programmer in different companies and also worked as mentor in this sector. I also have expertise on website development and design. I worked in KAZ Software, one of the best software companies in Bangladesh. I also worked in some other company iAppDragon and Prolog Inc.

I have completed my undergraduate studies from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in Computer Science and Engineering. Before starting for engineering school, I went to Notre Dame College and Ideal School, both one of the top schools & colleges of the country. I consider myself fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of some finest academic institutions of Bangladesh, thanks to almighty for the bliss.

Well, do you know me better now? Have fun in my cozy web home!

Research


Malware detection in google play: We have monitored 87k apps in google play for six months and currently we are analyzing those apps meta data using data mining and natural language processing to classify if they are malware or benign app.
(JAVA, Python, R, MySQL, Weka)

Reducing Social Networking Risks in Adolescents: We are investigating the connection between psychological mechanisms that render adolescents vulnerable to risky social networking behaviors they will be warned by effective notification.
(Python, R, MySQL)

Crowdsourcing Social Data Analysis: We have collected so many bidders’ and their associate projects’ information to anal- ysis the basic criteria to get a job in these sites. The sys tem will recommend which best bidder for a given project.
