I completed my elementary education in different parts of Bangladesh as my father was being posted frequently. I finished my secondary education from a High school situated in rural area. After completing the secondary education I came to Dhaka for Higher Secondary Education. Since then I have been living in Dhaka city.
I got my admission at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka and passed the most memorable parts of my life. I secured the best results in my university both at undergraduate and graduate levels. I had also a dream to be a teacher in same university. On August 28, 2005 I joined at SAU as a teacher. In September 2012, I received my PhD degree in Plant Physiology and Antioxidant Metabolism from United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Ehime University, Japan while I was affiliated in the Faculty of Agriculture, Kagawa University, Japan. I also got JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship for advanced research at the University of the Ryukyus, Okinawa, Japan.Subsequently, I completed another PostDoc at the University of Tasmania, Australia.
