Centre for Big Data Research

I am a medically trained early-career epidemiologist currently working in the Centre for Big Data Research in Health at UNSW. I completed a DPhil in Population Health from the University of Oxford and I have an MSc in Epidemiology degree from Karolinska Institute, Sweden. I also have degrees in Clinical Medicine and Public Health from Bangladesh. Furthermore, I received advanced training in diabetes research from the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD), genetic epidemiology from the University of Bristol, and prevention strategies for non-communicable diseases from University of Oxford.

I have researched different chronic diseases (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and respiratory comorbidity) using electronically linked large-scale routine healthcare data from Australia, UK, and Sweden.

I am currently working on several projects focusing on various health outcomes after cardiac events and procedures in older Australian adults. My research also focuses on using linked administrative data to address important gaps in health system research.
