Short Bio

Md Tariqul Islam (wherein ‘Md’ is the abbreviation of ‘Muhammad’) is currently enrolled in the PhD program under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Christian Esteve Rothenberg in the Department of Computer Engineering and Industrial Automation (DCA), School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (FEEC) at University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil. He is one of the members of the INTRIG Lab.
He obtained the MSc degree from the DCA/FEEC/UNICAMP in early 2021. The prime focus of his master’s thesis was the prediction of end-user QoE for DASH video service at network edge premises through machine learning to help network orchestrators detect SLA violations and take run time action, which was part of the Ericson-funded CLAML (Control Loop Architecture with Adaptive Policy and Machine Learning Capabilities) project.
He completed the BSc degree in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) from Mawlana Bhashani Science and Technology University (MBSTU), Bangladesh, in 2018.
