Curiosity is Infectious...

I am an Assistant Professor of Big Data and Artificial Intelligence in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

For my short biography and CV, visit this page.

I have multiple funded positions for graduate (Ph.D. and Master's) and undergraduate students to work on machine learning projects. If you are interested, self-motivated, hardworking, and adventurous, you may contact me at hasan@unl.edu


My research revolves around machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL), which are data-driven inductive learning paradigms of artificial intelligence (AI). I am interested to advance ML/DL research in two dimensions. (i) Science: investigate biases in the DL models, design generalizable solutions, and create explainable AI; and (ii) Application: apply ML/DL for solving practical problems in computer vision and Natural Language Processing (NLP).

AI for Social Good: I have been utilizing AI for performing social good, which includes a National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored project to improve STEM performance via an AI-based just-in-time personalized intervention system and using DL towards preventing COVID-19-related misinformation from online social media.

For information on my past and current research projects, visit this page.

I have created an extensive set of tutorials on ML/DL, which are posted on my GitHub page.


My passion for teaching is inspired by my mentor Richard Feynman! I am enthusiastic about conveying the joy and excitement of the world of modern AI through my lectures on ML and DL.
