I have worked as a Health Services Researcher, Lecturer, Module Leader, and Dissertation Supervisor at various Universities in the UK and abroad. Currently, I am a Lecturer at the School of Health and Social Care. I am involved in teaching various courses across Health and Social Care programme.

Prior to joining UWTSD, I was working as a research fellow at the University of Hertfordshire on the study ‘Enhancing research capacity in adult social care: The SCRiPT study’. I was based in the School of Health and Social Work, CRIPACC. Previously, I worked at the University of Liverpool for an NIHR ARC NWC project; and worked at Keele University as a health services researcher for an NIHR SPCR funded study ‘Optimise – HFpEF’, a collaborative, multi-site project involving Universities of Cambridge, Oxford, Manchester, and Keele. Before that I also worked as a qualitative health research assistant in two different universities: Bournemouth University and the University of Portsmouth.

I hold a PhD in Dementia from the University of Portsmouth, and an MA in Health and Social Care from Middlesex University London. I also completed my Honours (4 years) and Master’s degrees in Sociology from the University of Rajshahi.

I am particularly interested in teaching and conducting research in the fields of Public Health, which contributes significantly to the promotion of health, prevention of diseases, and the empowerment of individuals to manage illness and disabilities. My teaching and research activities cover a wide range of disciplines, including interdisciplinary and international collaborations that involve people from various backgrounds.  I believe that every new scientific discovery, awareness campaign, and policy will have the potential to make a positive difference in millions of lives around the world. In Public Health, research, inquiry, and action combine to develop innovative solutions that improve the quality of life of everyone by discovering and eliminating the root causes of health problems. My current role enables me to expand my knowledge of public health to study global health, as well as to concentrate particularly on methods in interdisciplinary research.

I am keen to supervise students’ (graduate/post-graduate) research in the fields of Public Health, both theoretical and empirical. I would particularly interest in the following areas: ageing and older people, dementia, mental health, heart failure, ethnicity, culture, and religion. 

I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) of the UK (now, Advance HE).

I also completed the Graduate Professional Development (GPROF) programme as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Action Plan. This professional recognition by the Higher Education Academy is both nationally and internationally recognised as standards of excellence in teaching and support in higher education.

I have got an Honorary Research Associate position at Keele University.

I am an alumnus of University of Portsmouth.
