- Over the last 19 years, I have evolved from being a botanist (MSc, 1999, University of Dhaka) to an aquatic ecologist (PhD, 2004, University of Liverpool), a conservationist (IUCN) to a development practitioner (Practical Action). At the current stage of my evolution, I find my niche in nature-people-knowledge nexus. Over these years, I have developed interest in and understanding of climate change adaptation, disaster risk management, natural resource management, biodiversity conservation, and environmental governance – all focusing on human well-being. I have worked with many environmental, development and research organizations (IUCN, Practical Action, IUB/ICCCAD, INASP, British Council, BRAC University, DelPHE, APN, IPCC & UNFCCC), donors (ADB & DFID) and my Government’s agencies in different capacities. I am associated with many peer-reviewed journals, learned societies, funding agencies, and knowledge & professional networks. I bring in expertise in creating, capturing and communicating knowledge; testing & promoting new ideas; and facilitating collaboration & networking. I and my co-workers have so far published more than 80 research papers, books (as authors, editors and contributors) and other publications, and over 75 articles and thought pieces on diverse topics − ranging from microscopic plants to freshwater ecosystems to climate change adaptation to poverty-technology link. My strong passion for research communication continues through designing & facilitating workshops for young researchers as well as mentoring them pursue their career. Since 2011, I have designed and facilitated 15 workshops for about 250 editors, young researchers, aspirant researchers, and students for organizations, like Bangladesh Academy of Sciences (BAS), Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (CVASU), International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), BRAC University, and Christian Commission for Development in Bangladesh (CCDB).
