“I first heard about dengue in 2008. I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Entomology, Patuakhali Science and Technology University, Bangladesh.”

“I have been performing research work on vector mosquitos, vector borne disease etc. I completed my MSc on Entomology and PhD, Post-Doc on vector biology and their control.”

“I am presently engaged in teaching and research, with Teaching (30%) and Research (70%). Personally, I believe, effective mosquito control is one of the best tool/strategies for dengue management. As there is a lot of problem in other strategies like no effective vaccine, climatic change, resistant Aedes population etc.”

“I have faced some issues like dengue data specially in Asian countries that are not updated. We have not a single platform from where we can share our news and views on dengue to solve the problem. As our dengue problem is almost same, we should work on dengue together.”

“Other than research and teaching job, I like to do editorial work on articles, books etc. My hobby is writing articles/ opinion on different national/international issues.”
