Profile Field Tabs

MSc. Fisheries Science, Jagannath University, Bangladesh - 2017
BSc. Zoology, Jagannath University, Bangladesh - 2016
Research/Career Interests: 

My research interest is in applying interdisciplinary approaches to tackle marine conservation challenges in a changing world. Through my current and future research, I aim to use quantitative techniques to better understand the bycatch of large marine animals including whales and dolphins in small-scale fisheries and develop bycatch mitigation strategies. I am undertaking qualitative approaches to understand the socio-psychological drivers of human behavior associated with bycatch and instigate behavioral changes to balance species conservation and human needs. ​
