Probir Roy

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science (CIS) at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. I received my Ph.D. from the College of William and Mary while working with Professor Xu Liu. I received my B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in 2009.

My research interests include program analysis, high-performance computing, and operating system. I develop tools and techniques to improve software performance and developer productivity.

"I am looking for self-motivated students who are interested in system research. Send an email including your CV and explaining your interest."
