About me

I love working with people and I have been fascinated by the ways novel technologies can influence interaction between human and technology.I recently completed my MSc in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) at the University of Nottingham. My research interest lies in the area of information seeking, HCI,social computing, ICT4D etc.

Previously, I studied in Electronics and Telecomunnication Engineering at North South University, Dhaka. Beside, I have been working as a web designer for over three years now. I served as web developer in iTechnoLab Ltd in Dhaka Bangladesh right after graduation. Later, I was involved with Webimpulse, a web solution company based in London.

Teaching

I discovered my enjoyment of teaching while teaching mathematics for Batch Mate, the tutoring house I founded in Dhaka. I prepared over five hundred students for their college admission test between years 2009 to 2011. I also received training from the Teaching Associates Scheme of Nottingham Trent University and was later placed in Ellis Guilford School, Nottingham for teaching ICT.

Batch Mate

I founded batch mate in February 2009, along with a friend of mine. Over the years, my this teaching house grew up to a level where it had three offices in the city and more than 500 students have already studied here and successfully enrolled in different universities. Coming from a engineering background I did learn a lot about running a business, basics of marketing, accounting, logistics and operations. It was pure joy of watching a start-up company growing slowly and successfully. In 2012, Batch Mate was officially closed down as I left the country for higher education.
