Schooled in the discipline of Public Administration at the University of Dhaka and with an experience of over five years of lecturing graduate and post-graduate students at two reputed public universities in Bangladesh, I am interested in research works related to education, gender, public policy, social studies and have multiple publications.

Apart from my current lecturing position, I worked as a news editor and contributor for the Dhaka Insider, an online news portal, in 2015. I also served as the Head of the Department (Department of Public Administration) and Assistant Proctor at the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University (BSMRSTU) and as an elected member of the Teachers’ Association there. During my post-graduation (MA. Public Policy) at the University of Nottingham, a qualitative research focus helped me characterize patterns of gender gap in primary education access.
