I am a lecturer at the VSE and Vantage College. Before joining UBC, I taught economics and finance courses at Simon Fraser University (SFU) and British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). I did my PhD in Finance at the Beedie School of Business of SFU. I have an MA in Economics from SFU and an MA in Financial Economics from York University. I am also a CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) charterholder and a certified FRM (Financial Risk Manager).
Before working in the education industry, I spent several years as an investment analyst and consultant at different investment banks, manufacturing firms, and think-tanks such as Fraser Institute and Asian Tiger Capital Partners Ltd. In these positions I worked on venture and private equity valuation, M&A, Macro Consulting, writing sector and industry reports.
I am originally from Bangladesh. During my free times, I play cricket at the British Columbia Mainland Cricket League (BCMCL). I spend a lot of time meeting and talking to my students regarding career and life planning. I love my job.
