I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Applied Statistics, followed by an MS in Applied Statistics from the Institute of Statistical Research and Training (ISRT), The University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. Then I worked as a faculty member of ISRT for a few years before doing an MSc in Statistics (2012) from The University of Nottingham, UK.   On completion of my PhD (2017) entitled “Missing data in cluster randomised trials” from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), UK, I returned to ISRT and currently working as Associate Professor of Applied Statistics.

 

Research Interests
