I am currently working as the Chair and an Associate Professor at the Women and Gender Studies Department of Dhaka University, Bangladesh. After completing BSS degree from the Anthropology Department ( 1999-2000) and MSS degree (2000-2001) from Women’s Studies Department of Dhaka University, I achieved PhD degree from the University of Amsterdam in 2012 and joint a multidisciplinary research team at Vanderbilt University, USA as a Post Doctoral Researcher where I worked until the end of 2013. My PhD research was on young men, sexuality and construction of masculinities in Bangladesh. While pursuing PhD trajectory in Amsterdam I also coordinated a research project on sexuality in the Global South funded by the Ford Foundation and SEPHIS. I set up the Centre for Men and Masculinities Studies in Bangladesh in 2011. Apart from PhD research I have carried out researches on construction of masculinities, youth, sexuality, violence, poverty etc. in Bangladesh for WHO, CARE, FPAB, IDLO, UNFPA, UNDP and Government of Bangladesh. I had also initiated a school based campaign to prevent violence against women and girls involving boys in schools titled “the BraveMen campaign”. I have also planned and hosted some TV programs including the 'Campus Hero' TV reality show and ‘Maximus Tarun Kantha”. Currently I am working as a Post Doc and Co-principal investigator in a research project on SRHR funded by NWO-WOTRO, The Netherlands and jointly implemented by Prumondo-US, CMMS and DWGS. The title of this project is the 'Campus Hero Cafe". The main objective of this project is to prevent violence against women and girls invlving young men and boys by promoting SRHR education in schools using innovative tools like mobile app, internet, self reflexive diaries etc. I am also hosting a TV Talk show currently on contemporary issues titled "Dimot, Sahamat, Matamat" in a satellite channel in Bangladesh.
