Promoting meaningful dissemination of clinical trials research to patient and public groups (PPI)
In my DPhil research, I am focusing on improving the transparency of how clinical trials research is disseminated or shared with patient and public groups (PPI). My supervisors are Professor Sally Hopewell, Professor Gary Collins, and Dr Jennifer de Beyer.
My research interests span clinical trials methodology, epidemiology, and public health. Before my DPhil, I worked as a Clinical Trials Coordinator at the Cambridge Clinical Trials Unit, where I successfully oversaw the conduct and management of two Phase-3 CTIMP trials, one Phase-IV non-CTIMP trial, and an observational registry. I’ve also contributed as a visiting researcher at Public Health England, where I worked on the prevalence of CDI and MRSA in care homes in East of England population using statistical methods.
Education has always been a passion of mine, and I've been actively involved in teaching roles throughout my career. These roles have included lecturing at Jagannath University in Bangladesh to tutoring at the Mawhiba International Enrichment Program at King Saud University in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
I completed a Master's degree in Control of Infectious Diseases from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, supported by a Commonwealth Scholarship. I conducted my thesis research on antimicrobial resistance surveillance at Harvard Medical School, USA. I also hold a bachelor’s degree in Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, where I graduated with the highest distinction and received the 'Dean's Award' for my ‘First Class First’ result. I researched on the molecular basis of osteoarthritis for my bachelor’s thesis.
Beyond academia, I have a deep love for literature, enjoy board games, and am always up for engaging conversations over a cup of tea.
