Welcome

Hi, I'm Nafees from Bangladesh.

Here, you can find information about me and my works (Publications, Ongoing Research Updates, etc). Currently I'm working as Senior Lecturer at Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Liberal Arts, Bangladesh (ULAB).

This website is also consist of standard pages: a Blog (most of the posts are on different technical issues of modern days), some important urls and things of my personal interest (mostly music and sports).

The Social Web as implemented by Facebook is my favourite medium of interaction, I'm also using Twitter (not extensively), and LinkedIn (once in a while).

Have fun!

"A Spectrum Aware Cluster-based Architecture for Cognitive Radio Ad-hoc Network"



With the swift expansion of wireless technologies, demand for radio spectrum is continuously mounting. Along with the spectrum scarcity problem, radio spectrums are also underutilized. Cognitive radio practices an open spectrum allocation technique, which can ensure efficient handling of the frequency bands. Suitable network model is a must for the implementation of cognitive radio networks. In this paper, an efficient cluster model for cognitive radio ad-hoc networks is presented using graph theory. The proposed clustering model is defined as a maximum edge biclique problem, where the spatial variations of spectrum availability are considered. This clustering scheme aims to maintain set of free common channels in every cluster, which allows smooth shifting among control channels. A parameter called Cluster Head Determining Factor (CHDF) is also introduced to select cluster-heads where clusters’ operations are coordinated by cluster-heads. Each cluster comprises of a secondary cluster-head to combat the re-clustering issue for mobile nodes. Finally, simulation and comparative studies are conducted to evaluate the performance of the proposed method.

career objectives

To pursue a challenging research career in an intellectually stimulating environment that will help me to realize my dream of being a vanguard of technical innovations in the field of Electrical and Telecommunication Engineering. My objective in the work life is to learn new things and combine them with the knowledge and experience that I have gathered earlier. This way I can expand my expertise so that I can do even more challenging and interesting new tasks or advance further on my career.
