Rafiqul Islam: I could become part of a worldwide community UNIVR stories

I am a Maria Skłodowska-Curie fellow under the INVITE project framework at the University of Verona, Italy.

My research project is entitled “Rainwater Harvesting in Fighting Climatic Concerns and Women Empowerment in Bangladesh”. I began this project in 2019. I have published three papers, two conference proceedings, one accepted, and two are in progress during this research.

I have received excellent support from my supervisor, Professor Roberto Ricciuti, that significantly contribute to my academic and professional development. I also have been getting outstanding help from Professor Federico Perali that contribute to my personal, educational, and professional life.
