I am a Lecturer (currently on study leave) of the Department of International Relations at the University of Dhaka. Before joining the academia, I worked with registered Rohingya refugee women and children of the official refugee camps at Ukhia and Nayapara in Bangladesh from 2013 to 2014. My research interests include high-risk migration, migrants’ lived experiences of risk, trading networks and diasporas, migrant entrepreneurship, and Bangladeshi migrants in South Africa.
I received my BSS (Hons.) in International Relations in 2012 and MSS in International Relations in 2013. I was awarded the Commonwealth Scholarship (2016-2017) to pursue an MA degree in Migration Studies at the University of Sussex, UK. I was also a recipient of the Asian Graduate Student Fellowship (2014) awarded by the Asia Research Institute (ARI), National University of Singapore. Since February 2019, I have been undertaking a PhD in Migration Studies at the University of Sussex, where I hold a fully-funded scholarship from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. My research investigates Bangladeshi migrants’ lived experiences of risk in South Africa, focusing on the intersection of risk, mobility, fortune, and autonomy.
