After graduation from Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College Hospital (HFRCMCH) on 2012, Mohd worked as a researcher at icddr,b (Bangladesh) for 2 years exploring the effects of antenatal nutrition and supplementation on neonatal and child mortality, morbidity and childhood stunting through community-based randomised controlled trials. As one of the co-investigators of the DFID-funded Transform Nutrition consortium, he has worked with researchers around the world to develop and test cost-effective strategies to scale impact of nutritional interventions in developing countries. He was also invited to speak at a TEDxDhaka (2014) event highlighting his work in the context of MDGs and the importance of female education and childhood nutrition in Bangladesh.
Mohd was awarded the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies Scholarship (OxCIS) to study for an MSc in Global Health Science (2015-2016) at the Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH), University of Oxford (Linacre College). Soon after, he was also nominated for the Medical Science Graduate School studentship award (2016-) to pursue his DPhil in Population Health at CTSU (St Edmunds Hall). His current work will be on Chinese adults, part of the China Kadoorie Biobank, that will focus on exploring causal associations of inflammatory biomarkers (CRP, IL-1,6, TNF-alpha etc) with risk of cardiovascular disease, using an approach called Mendelian randomisation.
