Mymensingh Medical College

I am a Medical Doctor working in a health and Nutrition Research Project in a remote northern area of Bangladesh for the last 4 years. Before that, I have completed my undergraduate medicine degree from the faculty of medicine of the University of Dhaka and finished one year residential internship training from a leading tertiary level hospital. I have also practiced as a general physician for 6 months before joining my current job.

In all of those years of working in health sector and in the Johns Hopkins University Public Health research projects in Bangladesh, I have had the opportunity to work with diverse groups of people, gained hands on experience on how a research project runs, from planning to implementation to dissemination of findings.

My long term career goal is to be an epidemiologist and to work in academic and field set up. My special interest is to do research on the health disparity among different groups of people in developing countries like Bangladesh and how it affect maternal and infant mortality and morbidity.
