I am currently working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Center for Experimental and Applied Economics (CEAE), Department of Applied Economics and Statistics, University of Delaware, Newark, DE, U.S.A. since January 2018. Prior to joining at the CEAE, I worked as an Assistant Professor, in Department of Economics, North South University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. I obtained my PhD and an M.A. in Economics from Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA, U.S.A. I obtained a BSS and an MSS in Economics from University of Dhaka, and an M.Sc in Economics and Finance from Department of Economics and Finance, Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, IL, U.S.A. In my PhD Dissertation, I estimated the determinants of agricultural technology adoption applying both econometric as well as experimental approaches, and conducted an impact evaluation of an agricultural technology adoption.

My research interest lies in Behavioral Economics, Applied Econometrics, Program Evaluation, Environmental and Resource Economics, and Development Economics. I am currently involved in multiple experiments using laboratory type, randomized controlled field experiment (RCT), and natural experiment set up.

I am currently working on several projects in collaboration with colleagues from Monash University, Michigan State University (MSU), University of California, Berkeley and St. Louis University (SLU) on topics such as technology adoption, climate change and child nutrition, social norm and household energy consumption, and efficacy of genetically modified (biotech) crops in combating food insecurity. I have presented in about 15 seminars, conferences, and workshops in areas of my expertise at home and abroad.

My computer skills include R, Stata, Eviews, Matlab (familiar), LaTex, MS Office.
