    Personal profile

    Artistic and research interests

    My academic background covers social sciences, management and natural sciences. I completed my doctoral work in 2012 (September) from the University of Helsinki. For my doctoral dissertation, I developed a service delivery system for the children’s practitioners in general. 

    My international teaching experience includes under-and post-graduate teaching and supervision, face-to-face courses, covering sociology, social and public policy, social work, field research, societal acceptability, renewable energy community, management, circular economy, and qualitative research methods. I am in a privileged position to offer well qualified and time tested experience in academic teaching and scholar mentorship, imbibed with international awareness gained in Bangladesh, Finland, Brazil, Malaysia, Norway, Taiwan, and Egypt (American University in Cairo). My future input to the institution would have no less to bank upon than 5 single semester courses in addition to 3 full year courses at five different institutions. My one course title Social Acceptability(MEC 9130) has been accepted for advance level studies at Aalto University.

Now, I am working as a visiting professor and adjunct faculty at Northern University Bangladesh.  During my renewable energy and sustainability research projects activities, I have been developing societal acceptance renewable energy model that considers right social and public policy measures in the context of sustainability science.
