I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the School of Engineering and Computer Science at Oakland University. My research interests cover the broad area of parallel and distributed systems. More specific areas of my interests include High Performance Computing, Interconnection Networks, Network flow optimization and modeling as well as software-defined networking. If you have similar research interests and want to discuss about them, please drop me an email(mollah AT oakland DOT edu) or stop by at my office at 324 Engineering Center.

I completed my Ph.D. and Masters degree from the department of Computer Science at Florida State University. During my doctotal study I worked at the EXtreme-scale comPuting, modeLing, netwORking & systEms Research (EXPLORER) laboratory.
