I am a Senior Lecturer in Economics at the Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics, Business School, Bournemouth University, UK. I joined the School in September 2011 after obtaining my PhD from the School of Economics of the University of Nottingham. I received Masters Degrees in Economics from Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Japan and the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. I worked as a Teaching Assistant in Economics at the Department of Economics of the University of Bristol from 2009-2011.
I current research interest included the refugee crisis, international migration, education and human capital development. A blog on my project on the Rohingya Refugee Crisis is available on this link https://blogs.bournemouth.ac.uk/research/2018/04/30/responsible-project-management-in-bangladesh/. I am interested in supervising students for PhD on the refugee crisis, international migration and international trade.
