Short Biography:

I have been serving as Associate Professor since 2018 at the Department of Information Science & Library Management, University of Dhaka.  I do create value by helping students to make learning more enjoyable, foster research from my hungriness and serve the community needed by the community people. I shed light on how knowledge is created in organization and how managing knowledge leads to innovation. I am not a tech-savvy person but enjoy the blessing of technology. I love to travel and bibliophile.
