I am Akond, Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science (CSC) at North Carolina State University. I am extremely privileged to be supervised by Dr. Laurie Williams. I am also the member of the Realsearch research group. Recently, I won the ACM SIGSOFT Doctoral Symposium Award at ICSE 2018 in May, 2018. I also won the Grand Prize of the Microsoft Open Source Challenge back in April, 2016.

I was born in Bangladesh, a beautiful country in South Asia. I completed my undergraduate studies in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), and M.Sc. at University of Connecticut.

I like thinking and solving research problems in software enginering . My research interests include Continuous Deployment, DevOps, and Mining Software Repositories. To conduct my research activities I have relied on evolutionary algorithms, grounded theory, mining algorithms, statistical methods, and supervised and unsupervised learning techniques.

Current Research Activities:

  • I am currently investigating what security anti-patterns occur in infrastructure as code (IaC) scripts e.g. Chef, and Puppet scripts. Stay tuned for new findings!
