Dhaka, Bangladesh

I am a logician, a bicyclist, a juggler, a kayaker, a nature lover, an aspiring mountaineer, and a postage stamp collector. I love music- playing instruments, singing, and listening to them, enjoy reading non-fictions, watching movies, and exploring life. I am very passionate about human rights, equity and equality. I believe that science is the ultimate way of enlightenment. SCIENCE is not a noun, it’s a VERB. I was born and brought up in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I moved to the United States for my MA in 2014, worked in New York City for a couple of years before joining UF.


Master’s, Media Arts and Studies – Ohio University
Bachelor’s, Electronics and Telecommunication – North South University Bangladesh


Master’s Advisor: Dr. Janice Krieger

I am a science and technology lover and I am interested in communicating science to the mass people in the most effective way for the development of our species. Being an international student, I am also interested in intercultural and cross-cultural communication specifically for health-related communication strategies. I aspire to become a successful health and science communication strategist, working all over the world, especially in developing countries.


I taught the RTV 2100 lab this semester and I enjoyed teaching undergrads about television production and writing. But I think I would be more interested in teaching things relevant to science communication and cross-cultural health communication and intercultural research.
