Hi, it's me! Jayedur Rashid! Or you can simply call me "Jay". Check here for my personal detail if you are interested.

At the moment I am working for a consultant company, called Sigma Kudos in their Ebmedded System department. I have done my PhD in Computer Science from Orebro University, Sweden. Mobile Robotics Lab at AASS was my working lab. Dr. Mathias Broxvall and Prof. Alessandro Saffiotti were my supervisors. My Phd project name is "Ecologies For Ambient Assisted Living (EAAL) Project", which is part of a larger project named PEIS-e Ecology in our lab. Digital copy of the thesis is available in the List of publication section.

My research areas are Pervasive Robotics, Wireless Sensor and Actuator Network, Embedded Systems, Distributed Systems, and Intelligent Robotics.

I also worked as a teaching assistant in the department for "Software Engineering", "Computer Graphics" and "Web Development with J2EE" courses.
