About Me

I am primarily a Socio-Environmental Researcher based in the United Kingdom (originally from Bangladesh). I have extensive experience in scientific and social research, utilizing quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods in environmental human geography and social science. Additionally, I possess over four years of experience in project management, planning, monitoring, and reporting on climate change, disaster risk reduction, and environmental, social, and development interventions. I have worked as a Research and advocacy professional on various projects with academic, government, non-government, and civil society organizations in Bangladesh and abroad.

I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Sociology, Lancaster University, UK. My PhD thesis focuses on unraveling the association between sociodemographic, economic, political, and physical environmental factors and their impact on food insecurity, focusing on Global Majority countries.

After completing my Bachelor’s in Environmental Sciences from Jahangirnagar University, Dhaka, Bangladesh, I pursued a Master’s degree from the same department. I have presented my research at national and international conferences and have published several articles and book chapters in peer-reviewed international journals and publishers. Motivated to work in climate change and sustainable development, I enjoy traveling and mentoring and am enthusiastic about sharing creative ideas.
