NLP Researcher @ Research Team, Wikimedia Foundation
Learning is my passion. Everything else just falls in place.

About me

I am an ML and NLP enthusiast from Bangladesh. I love working wih data and drawing information from them. I did my Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering from Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, Bangladesh and Masters in Computer Science from University of Waterloo, Canada. Upon graduation, I worked as a Machine Learning Engineer for about a year before joining Wikimedia Foundation as a Data Analyst and Researcher, performing several roles along the way.

My work

  • I work with the Research Team as a Research Data Scientist (NLP) to develop Copyediting as a structured task. To increase and maintain the standard of Wikipedia articles, it is important to ensure articles don't have typos, spelling, or grammatical errors. While there are ongoing efforts to automatically detect "commonly misspelled" words in English Wikipedia, most other languages are left behind. We intend to find ways to detect errors in articles in all languages in an automated fashion.
  • Previously I worked with the Search and Analytics team to find ways to scale the Wikidata Query Service by analyzing the queries being made. Phabricator Work Board (WDQS Analysis).
  • I also worked on the Abstract Wikipedia project during my Outreachy internship (see this) to find out important Scribunto Modules across all the wikis and group similar ones.
