    Collapse overview
    I did Master in Zoology (MSc) specialized in Medical Entomology; also did Master in Public Health (MPH). I have been involved in research activities related to Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) since 2000. I was awarded TDR Fellowship on Programme Management for 2008-2010 which was based in WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia (SEARO), New Delhi, India. I worked as Technical Officer in the NTD Unit of WHO/SEARO as Temporary International Professional (TIP). Currently I am working as Adjunct Faculty in the Public Health Department, School of Life Science, Independent University Bangladesh (IUB); Consultant at International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b) and National Institute of Preventive and Social Medicine (NIPSOM), Dhaka, Bangladesh.
