Institute of Statistical Research and Training
I am currently appointed as Professor of Applied Statistics at the Institute of Statistical Research and Training (ISRT), University of Dhaka. Earlier I obtained bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Applied Statistics from the University of Dhaka. I truly started a research career as a PhD student at the School of Mathematical Sciences, Queen Mary University of London, UK. I looked there at the adaptive designs for dose-finding in early phase clinical trials, under the supervision of Dr. Barbara Bogacka and Dr. D. Stephen Coad. My current research focuses on the various aspects of dose-finding in early phase clinical trials.Show less
