Environmental economist, Fondazione CMCC
Lecturer, Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia
Visiting Fellow, Grantham Research Institute, LSE
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
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.
