  • Scientific capacity building in low and middle income countries

Background

My long term research interests focus on the development of a comprehensive understanding of key pathways and interactions involved in Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) along with Infectious disease epidemiology (specially zoonotic) through One Health approach. My primary expertise lies in the field epidemiology, global health and One Health with skilled training on medical sciences, public health and clinical trials. Most of my works have been focused on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and vaccine trials. In my research career of more than a decade, I have prior experience to conduct several collaborative projects independently with established donors like Fogarty International Centre (FIC), Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), European Union (EU), Norad's program for master studies (NOMA) which justifies my experience and leadership to lead any project and to direct joint efforts with epidemiological, social, clinical and microbiological collaborators. I had also been involved in clinical trials, immunological studies and AMR surveillance at icddr,b in close collaboration with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), International Vaccine Institute (IVI),Medical Research Council-UK(MRC-UK), Johns Hopkins University and Harvard Medical School. Along with a certified vaccinologist, I am GCP trained with long standing experience of field trials. This is substantiated by my track record of successful publications in renowned journals like Lancet, Lancet Infectious Diseases, Lancet Planetary Health, NEJM, BMJ, Vaccine etc with distinguished researchers.

In addition, I have keen interest in zoonotic and environmental epidemiology. After medical graduation and post graduate residency in pediatrics, I started my public health career as a local Nipah surveillance coordinator in a tertiary care hospital. Subsequently, I have widened my knowledge in multidisciplinary and diverse fields of research and carried out various studies in this arena like Network Analysis of Avian Influenza, Nipah surveillance, Economic policy evaluation of different zoonotic and tropical diseases e.g. Crimean Congo Haemorrhagic fever, Anthrax, HPAI etc. with other animal and wildlife researchers for developing control policies to minimize the spread and impact of such diseases.

In regard to academic background, I passed my medical degree (MBBS) from University of Dhaka in 2005. Later, I obtained my MPhil in Public Health under NOMA fellowship grant from UiO and MPH in Biosecurity under One Health Fellowship from Massey University. Recently, I have completed GHES Fogarty fellowship program on AMR research from University of California Berkeley, USA and training as visiting scholar at Vanderbilt University, USA.
