Personal profile


I am an assistant professor of Geography in Bangladesh and doctoral researcher of environmental health searching for the correlation between physical and human geography by incorporating the latest information technology like ArcGIS and satellite datasets. The sustainable development goal is my main concern. Currently, I am looking into the relationship between the people and the urban heat. I have an intention to work with WHO and the UN to enhance resilience for human health protection with my research outcomes. 

Research interests

My research interest is especially focused on environmental changes over time. I am wondering to think about the horizons of Antarctica which are in crisis with climate change. 

I am also interested in women and child health and their sustainability. How climate events impact them and what they responded to. How can we improve their performance and the responsibility of the concerned industries?  

Green infrastructure and urban planning are my fascinations. Clean air, air circulation, and healthy breathing are emerging.
