I have completed my Masters (University of Canberra) and PhD (RMIT University) by research. I have published and presented 11 research papers in academic journals, books, refereed conference proceedings. I published it in the ABDC’S Tier A- ranking journal. Based on my Master’s thesis, I have published Tier B’s article (Australasian Journal of Regional Studies). The book chapter has been accepted and published in mid-2022 as ‘Improving Worker Well Being through International Action: Women Workers in the Bangladesh Ready-Made Garment Sector’ with the book title name ‘A Field Guide to Diversity Management publisher is Edward Elgar Limited, Cheltenham. In addition, another book chapter as ‘Factors Influencing the Revival of Declining Small Businesses in Australia’ in Routledge in the book titled ‘Regional Businesses in a Changing Global Economic: The Australian Experience.’ I have a track record of publishing in ABDC journal, book chapters and presenting in reputed conferences.
As a researcher, I am developing my career profile in research and development. I created a research profile in rural indigenous women’s health and millennium development goals for my Master’s degree research from the University of Canberra (5). My Master’s research project led to a full–funded research scholarship of the Australian Government’s Collaborative Research Networks (CRN) program through the Centre for Professional Health Education, Central Queensland University. I also worked as a principal research investigator of the plain packaging of cigarettes in 2014 at CQUniversity. Plain packaging of cigarettes was one of the critical lists of the quit smoking programme from 2013-2014. I have also secured a research fund worth 1000 Australian dollars from the Kent Institute, Melbourne branch, and another research investigator, and both of us researched the ‘high-performance work system of the higher education in Australia.’ It was a systematic review process of existing literature from the last 20 years, and Vos viewer was applied to get the cluster of the research process.
My PhD project has shed light on other manufacturing industries across many developing countries to understand employees’ life and job satisfaction. I have expertise knowledge in both qualitative and quantitative methodology. I have focused on various theories for my Master’s and PhD studies: inclusive governance, employee wellbeing, capability approach, stakeholder, and agency theory. My intensive research on health care services and manufacturing services (readymade garments) has enabled me to conduct mixed-method research.
