Bio

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Faculty of Information and Media Studies at Western University, London, Ontario, Canada. I am also an assistant professor (on study leave) in the Department of Information Science and Library Management at the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. I hold two Masters in Library and Information Science— one from the University of Dhaka and other from the three European universities in Norway, Estonia, and Italy (Erasmus Mundus program). My doctoral study seeks to understand the transitional information practices of immigrants in Canada and the role of information in their Canadian lives, looking in particular at the information practices that occur between pre-arrival and after arrival information needs and seeking related to settlement into Canada.
