Prior to joining my PhD in Law in 2020, I served as a judge and also worked as Deputy Secretary and Deputy Solicitor at Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, Bangladesh. Apart from my judicial engagements in different tiers for more than a decade, I also worked as Member, ‘Bangladesh-Myanmar Joint Working Group on Return of Displaced Myanmar Nationals’; Member, ‘Bangladesh Judicial Academy Project’. I was previously enrolled as an Advocate, Supreme Court of Bangladesh. My research works on sentencing, criminal justice, policing, penal reform, victim justice etc. have appeared in journals of home and abroad. I also enjoyed my role as adjunct faculty in University of Chittagong and Judicial Administration training Institute. I took part trainings in the UK, Japan, Australia and Bangladesh.

Being a University of Sheffield School of Law Scholarship awardee, I have become part of White Rose Social Sciences DTP (Security, Conflict and Justice Pathway). I aspire to better equip myself with rich resources and collaborations it offers while contributing my skills and knowledge in developing it in coming days.
