I’m a researcher of race, empire, and the postcolonial legacies of South Asia. My research is on the reproduction of martial race discourses through the literary representations of Indian soldiers on the Western Front of World War I.

I’m from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I migrated to Europe in 2017 to study for my Master of Arts in International Migration (with International Conflict & Security), which I completed in 2019. I also hold a Bachelor of Social Science in Economics from BRAC University in Dhaka and was employed as an editor of youth literature by the Bangladeshi English language newspaper, The Daily Star. I have a keen interest in literature and have contributed to short fiction and poetry anthologies.
