Dr. Md. Rafiqul Islam

Professor

Research Interest:

My main research interest is doing research in the area of designing and analyzing algorithms. I designed algorithms of heap sort and analyzed complexity. I designed several algorithms related to external sorting and analyzed their complexities. I also designed several algorithms in the area of access control, which is an area of information security. I have conducted research (supervised students) in the area of external sorting, bio-informatics, data compression and grid computing. We have designed several algorithms in the above-mentioned area. These algorithms have been published in Journals or in Proceedings of Internal Conferences. In short, my research interest in doing research is external sorting, bio-informatics, information security, information retrieval, corpus building method, data compression, grid computing, cloud computing, image processing, Big data etc.y main research interest is doing research in the area of designing and analyzing algorithms.
