Research interests

I have keen interest in developing my research career in the field of environmental science, environmental toxicology, emerging pollutants in the environment and their remediation for the sustainable management. Chemical speciation and bioavailability of trace metals, organic pollutants and various toxic chemicals in the environment, human health and ecological risk assessment giving emphasize on fisheries and aquaculture resources. I also have plan to develop some pollution control strategies to maintain sustainable environment for the wildlife as well as human being.

Education

PhD in Environmental Science in 2017. Professor Masunaga Laboratory, Graduate School of Environment and Information Sciences, Yokohama National University, Japan. PhD thesis title: Monitoring and Assessment of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in Water, Sediment, and Seafood from the Coastal Areas of Bangladesh. (In this study, surface water, sediment, and commonly consumed seafood (5 finfish and 2 shellfish species) collected from the coastal areas of Bangladesh were analyzed for three groups of POPs i.e., PCBs, PFAAs, and PAHs. Finally, ecological and health risk of POPs were assessed based on their concentrations in the environmental media). PhD was funded by MONBUKAGAKUSHO scholarship from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan.

Masters of Science in Fisheries (1 year) in 2007. Result: First class first position. Department of Fisheries, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. Dissertation title: Cytotoxic and Genotoxic Potentials of Arsenic in Tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus).

Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Fisheries (4-years) in 2006. Result: First class first position. Department of Fisheries, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
