Dr. Mahbub Majumdar is a mathematician with a wide array of interests. His interests in computer science are development oriented -- how can we use computer science techniques and compuational power to make the lives of Bangladeshis better? His academic interests are in string theory, early universe cosmology and mathematical physics.
For those wanting to work with Mahbub or do a thesis with him, an outline of his interests is below.
- Machine Learning
- Computational Finance
- Cryptocurrencies, Blockchain and related ideas
- Quantum Computing, Quantum Algorithms and Cryptography
- String cosmology
- Black Hole Information Paradox and Quantum Information Theory
- Singularity resolution
- Resurgence and non-perturbative phenomena
- Elliptic curves, Modular forms and Moonshine
- Game Theory, Auctions and applications of game theory to social sciences
- Sampling techniques and polling
One of Mahbub's primary goals is the guiding of the best mathematical and scientific talent in Bangladesh and the creation of a community of extremely capable Bangladeshi mathematicians, theoretical physicsists and computer scientists. He is MIT's Regional Coordinator and the National Coach of the Bangladesh Mathematical Olympiad Team. Mahbub is also active in trying to contribute to nation building by injecting technical sophistication into the business and financial spaces and supporting entrepreneurs by finding them financial support and providing technical expertise to turn their ideas into successful companies to create a modern Bangladesh.
He teaches a wide array of courses ranging from Machine Learning to Number Theory to Quantum Field Theory.
