I am a physician and clinical researcher. I have completed my MBBS degree from Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College, Bangladesh and Post Graduate Diploma in Paediatrics and Child Health from Imperial College London, UK. Before joining to UQ, I worked for about nine years at an international research organization ( in Dhaka, Bangladesh. My main interest in research includes child respiratory and alimentary diseases and malnutrition.
