She started her teaching career with the Department of Public Administration at Comilla University in Bangladesh as a Lecturer in 2019. Earlier Mrs. Jahan served as the Research Associate at the BRAC Institute of Governance and Development (BIGD), BRAC University. Before that, she was a research assistant with a private research firm. She has more than five years of solid research experience in the development sector working in various rigorous evidence-based research works. Her areas of research interest include International Relations, Comparative Politics, and Public Policy.


Miskat has five international publications where she studied different issues related to democracy, accountability, COVID-19, and administration. One of her book chapters explored the perplexing relationship of democracy, transparency, and development in the contemporary era. Her other book chapter has shed light on the status of social accountability in rural local governance in Bangladesh and the way forward: in the Case of Union Parishad (the lowest tier of local government in Bangladesh). In the book The Palgrave Handbook of Comparative Public Administration Concepts and Cases, she wrote a chapter on the administrative history and structure of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Her recent forthcoming article will be published by the Social Science Faculty of Dhaka University, Bangladesh where she analyzed the Justification of Democratic Peace Theory in The 21st Century. Miskat's other forthcoming book chapter will be published by Nobel Academic Publishing in Turkey which will cover the Impact of COVID on the Education System of Bangladesh.

She aspires to be a good researcher and academician majoring in Political Science, International Relations and minoring in Comparative Politics. She cherishes seeing her book published by a well-known international publisher which will be helpful for the students of Public Administration and Political Science.
