I teach about the social structure of Bengal as well as urban issues in the contemporary world. Trained in the field of Sociology, I work mainly on Education and try to explain the social phenomena from a sociological standpoint.

I'm currently working on multiple projects, funded by Khulna University Research Cell (KURC) and Khulna Divisional Convention Center Development Project, to explore different aspects of classroom behavior as well as the situation analysis of beggars in Khulna city and honey collectors in the Sundarbans.

I'm working as Associate Professor in the Sociology Discipline under the Social Science School of Khulna University. In addition, I'm currently working as an academic editor for PLoS ONE.

My research mainly focused on education, and how social, financial and cultural capitals are influencing the academic attainment. I have two foci in current research - to understand the cultural awareness of teachers and students in EFL classroom and to explore the factors influencing the differences. The other areas I am interested in are Environmental Sociology and Public Health.
