My Ph. D. in economics focuses in macro and monetary economics. As such, my teaching focus area is macroeconomics and applied econometrics. My research interest includes applied macro and monetary economics. I am particularly interested in budgets, fiscal policy, debt and monetary policy, macro-finance and international finance. In addition, I have interest in governance and development. I am open to new ideas and looking forward to collaborate with others.

Future Goals and Aspirations
As a young economist, I would like to continue with my research and expand my research expertise. I envisage publishing my work in reputed peer-reviewed journals. As a young faculty, I would like to learn and utilize innovative teaching techniques in my class. During the recent Teaching and Innovation Showcase, I learned about the project 'Rockonomix' used by some of my colleagues. I am using it for my introductory class. I am working to design my own project for the same class. I believe teaching innovations will not only make us better teachers but at the same time our students benefit a great deal. I would like to develop a study tour in Bangladesh for our students. I would like to make this study tour a learning by doing exercise. I envisage to introduce our students to a variety of aspects. Starting from visits to public and private universities in Bangladesh to learn about student life, visiting a tea garden and learn about tea production, visit some new business as well.
Life Outside the University
I like to travel.
