Research Interests

I have spent last two years researching in the recently developed field of Digital Sociology following my interest. In the broader field of communication research, few of my specific research sub-fields are: gender studies (gendered communication, gender-based violence, gender socialization), religious studies (Islam, religious minority, religious politics), and political science (political communication, politics and power, politics of news). I have developed a particular interest in digital culture of Bangladesh and South Asia, and produced several research articles on the related topics. I would like to advance my understanding further in this area through my future research.
