I have completed a BSc and MSc in statistics with first class honours at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, Bangladesh and then completed an MSc in bio-statistics with distinction at the Hasselt University, Belgium under the Flemish Government Interuniversity Council Scholarship (VLIR-UOS) programme: 2011-2013. Before starting my PhD, I was involved in teaching statistics at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, Bangladesh.
My research interests include epidemiology and disease modelling, machine learning and natural language processing, study design in clinical trials, longitudinal data analysis, joint modelling, mixed models, Bayesian analysis, survival analysis, spatial statistics and time series analysis.
My PhD is affiliated with the Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research (AUKCAR), and supported by the College of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine of The University of Edinburgh and the Farr Institute, UK.
