Dr. Nabeel Mohammed completed his Bachelors in Computer Science from Monash University Australia. Following that he worked as a Software Developer for Editure Ltd, a Melbourne based Software Firm specializing in providing software solutions for K-12 schools. After three and half years in that role he moved back into academia to complete his PhD at Monash University, Australia, where he worked in the area of unsupervised image feature extraction and its application to content-based image retrieval. After returning to Bangladesh in 2013, he has concentrated on working on different machine learning based projects with a special interest in the application of machine learning to applications with a focus on the incorporation of the Bangla language.
