I am a PhD student working with the research group Social Epidemiology at the Department of Public Health Sciences. My research is funded by three sources: Department of Public Health Sciences at KI, SIMSAM Lund at Lund University, and a European Union project titled Ageing Trajectories of Health: Longitudinal Opportunities and Synergies (ATHLOS). I also work as a managing editor for the European Journal of Public Health.
I completed my Bachelor and Master degrees in Sociology at Dhaka University, Bangladesh. I also had a second Master degree in Public Health from the Centre for Health Equity Studies which is run in collaboration between Stockholm University and Karolinska Institute.
My current scientific interests lie in the fields of health inequalities, life course epidemiology, and social gerontology. My PhD project aims to examine the mechanisms through which the social and biological conditions in early life evolve over the entire life course and across generations to produce and reproduce the patterns of health inequalities. The project utilizes two large longitudinal datasets available within Sweden: the Uppsala Birth Cohort Multi-generational Study and the Stockholm Public Health Cohort.
