Originally from Bangladesh, I studied in the US before moving to Italy for my PhD. My research investigates the impacts of climate change on labour, food security, inequality, and human health using applied econometrics. I am particularly interested in the effects on households and the efficacy of social protection policies in the context of climate change.

My work contributes to;

  • advancing knowledge on socioeconomic impacts of climate change

  • identifying hotspots and vulnerable population

  • supporting the design of tailored policies to mitigate and adapt to climate impacts   

 

I lead the ISIMIP labour impacts sector examining the effects of climate and weather shocks on the labour force and contribute to both the Global Lancet Countdown and the Lancet Countdown in Europe.

Teaching is a passion! I teach statistics, economics, and econometrics courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

I am a voracious reader (I read almost anything) and an amateur photographer. I took the background picture on this page - Canal Grande from Rialto bridge!

I love traveling with my wife! Currently, we are making our way through northern Italy - one small town at a time. 

I am always looking to collaborate! If you are interested, please contact me.
