Farhana also works as a consultant offering technical expertise and trainings on gender equality, social policy, and human rights.

Through feminist ethnographic research, Farhana's doctoral research seeks to explore how forced migration and mass exodus of the Rohingya community to the refugee camps outside of Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh has transformed Rohingya gender relations and roles in displacement – specifically, how forced migration has affected the gendered subjectivities and lived experiences of Rohingya refugee women.
