About Himself: My research at NUS focuses on the comparative study of environmental philosophy. By comparing Western and Asian attitudes toward human-nature relationship, I want to spell out some common values that are seemed to appear as core values. Then, an ethical guideline on the basis of these common core values will be developed.
I obtained my Master’s degree in Applied Ethics from Linköping University, Sweden and Utrecht University, the Netherlands as an Erasmus Mundus scholar. I came from Bangladesh, where I gained my Bachelor (Honours) and Master degrees in Philosophy.
Beyond philosophical activities, I like to watch the exciting events around the globe.
Areas of interest: Environmental Ethics and Philosophy, Applied Ethics, Bioethics, Political Philosophy.
