I am a Lecturer at the Vancouver School of Economics of University of British Columbia, BC, Canada. Before joining UBC, I taught economics and finance courses at Simon Fraser University (SFU), British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), and Douglas College. 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).
In some occasions, I train CFA exam candidates in preparing for their exams as the Director of Learning at FinanceTraining.ca. I am also an active researcher working on capital gains taxes, asset pricing, behavioral finance, IPO and SEO underpricing.
Before working in the education industry, I spent several years as 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, and writing sector and industry reports while providing sound advice on investment and portfolio management.
I am originally from Bangladesh. During my free times, I play cricket at the British Columbia Mainland Cricket League (BCMCL) for the Bengal Tigers Cricket Club. I enjoy spending a lot of time meeting and talking to my students regarding career and life planning.
