Quazi Ishtiaque Mahmud

Graduate Student

I completed my Bachelor in Computer Science from Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST), Bangladesh. Then I served as a software engineer in Selise, a Switzerland-based Software Firm located in Dhaka. Then I served as an instructor at SUST and taught courses like Structured Programming Language, Data Structures and Algorithms, Software Architecture and Design Patterns, etc. Right now, I am doing Ph.D. in Computer Science at Iowa State University. My research interests include Software Engineering, Parallel Programming, Deep Learning, and High-Performance Computing (HPC). Right now, I am working in the SwAPP Lab directed by Dr. Ali Jannesari. I have published as co-author in IPDPS Workshop and MLSys conference. My current research work focuses on discovering parallelism opportunities in sequential codes and generating parallel codes using LLM. 

I have also done a summer internship at Ames National Laboratory and been a Research Asssitant there for a year. During my time at Ames National Lab, I designed and developed a CI architecture with reusable workflows combined with composite actions for NWChemEx, which is an open-source computational chemistry software for HPC.
