I am committed to devising public policies to enhance employment and education opportunities for women, refugees and other marginalized groups in South Asia. Currently, I am working with the local community at the Rohingya refugee camps to improve mental and fiscal wellbeing of refugees. In collaboration with the local and international NGOs, I am also working on designing interventions to enhance education and health outcomes of women and children leveraging mobile technologies in these camps in Bangladesh.
