Prof. Dr. Talal Rahman, PhD


Department of Computer Science and Engineering



Office: 51 Siddeswari Road, Dhaka, Bangladesh


My field of interests lie in the junction between computer science, mathematics, and engineering, and has the primary objective of using mathematics to develop algorithms for the solution of large and often complex engineering problems. My research spans several topics of computational sciences, including scientific computing, numerical methods for partial differential equations, variational image processing, and computational marine fisheries.
