Career Summary


Mohammad Nazmul Haque achieved his Doctor of Philosophy (Computer Science) degree from the University of Newcastle, Australia on 15-Feb-2017. His research area was on the genetic algorithm-based ensemble of classification methods for biological data classification. He achieved his Master and Bachelor of Science in Computer Science & Engineering from Daffodil International University, Bangladesh in 2011 and 2006, respectively.

Before Mohammad started his RHD candidature in Aug 2012, he was involved in academia as Lecturer at Daffodil International University, Bangladesh from 2009 to 2012. He also served as Lecturer of Computing Information Systems at Daffodil Institute of IT, Bangladesh from 2007 to 2009. Just after completing his Bachelor in 2006, he joined as Junior Software Engineer at KMC e-technology, Bangladesh.

Mohammad has interdisciplinary research experiences in data analysis, evolutionary computing and machine learning for large-scale datasets. He published several papers in peer-reviewed journals, conferences and book chapters. He possesses the analytic and biomarker discovery experiences throughout the Ph.D. research from heterogeneous data (gene expression, images, consumer behaviour, disease datasets). His major research interest covers data analytics (heterogeneous data classification & knowledge discovery), artificial intelligence, image processing and health informatics.

This is an open access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original author and source are credited.Classification of datasets with imbalanced sample distributions has always been a challenge. In general, a popular approach for enhancing classification performance is the construction of an ensemble of classifiers. However, the performance of an ensemble is dependent on the choice of constituent base classifiers. Therefore, we propose a genetic algorithm-based search method for finding the optimum combination from a pool of base classifiers to form a heterogeneous ensemble. The algorithm, called GA-EoC, utilises 10 fold-cross validation on training data for evaluating the quality of each candidate ensembles. In order to combine the base classifiers decision into ensemble's output, we used the simple and widely used majority voting approach. The proposed algorithm, along with the random sub-sampling approach to balance the class distribution, has been used for classifying class-imbalanced datasets. Additionally, if a feature set was not available, we used the (a, ß) - k Feature Set method to select a better subset of features for classification. We have tested GA-EoC with three benchmarking datasets from the UCI-Machine Learning repository, one Alzheimer's disease dataset and a subset of the PubFig database of Columbia University. In general, the performance of the proposed method on the chosen datasets is robust and better than that of the constituent base classifiers and many other well-known ensembles. Based on our empirical study we claim that a genetic algorithm is a superior and reliable approach to heterogeneous ensemble construction and we expect that the proposed GA-EoC would perform consistently in other cases.
