About Tasmia Kabir

Tasmia Kabir is from Bangladesh where she obtained her BSc. and MSc. in Economics at Jagangirnagar University. Then she worked for Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) for a few years, and her research focus was climate finance governance, environmental laws and policies, and advocacy. In her Master’s thesis, she is looking at the profitability of split nitrogen application in Ontario corn production. Her growing experience in environment and climate-related issues spurred her interest in Best Management Practices in the agricultural sector. She plans to continue her work for NGOs after the degree and pursue her research on socio-economic costs of environmental impacts and climate change, environmental laws and policies and advocacy. Tasmia loves to cook, travel, watch movies and listen to music. She learned music for 18 years and performed in various events. She was a professional handball player until undergrad and also played badminton. Finally, she loves to take challenges because she believes that a challenge is an opportunity to grow.
