I am Md Tarikul Islam Papon, a first year PhD student at the Computer Science Department of Boston University. I am a member of the MiDAS group@BU, advised by Professor Manos Athanassoulis. My research interests broadly include Data Systems, specifically focusing on hardware-aware data management challenges, stemming from the evolution of storage and memory devices.
Prior to joining Boston University, I was a lecturer at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) in Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET) for 4 years. I completed my MSc and BSc degree from the same department under the supervision of Dr. Ashikur Rahman. There I worked on medical informatics using various machine learning and embedded system techniques for health monitoring.
Outside of the office I enjoy traveling and playing Table Tennis, Pool (mostly 8 Ball and 9 Ball). I also love watching movie and tv series.
I am currently working on proposing a new design paradigm for interacting with durable storage that takes into account performance asymmetry between read and write operations, as well as the variable access concurrency that different devices may support. In addition, I am working on proposing new abstractions for data systems architectures supporting efficient hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP). Prior to joining BU, I worked on medical informatics including software/hardware co-design approaches using various machine learning and embedded system techniques for tele-health monitoring.
