Begum is currently working on HI-AWARE Research Component 3. Her research topic “Dealing with Quality Comparison of Drinking Water Sources of Mountain Cities of the Gilgit Baltistan Region” is very pertinent in the context of the contamination of water in Gilgit Baltistan, a longstanding issue that needs immediate addressing.

Begum completed her BS with Honours in Food and Agriculture Technology from Karakoram International University. She worked on the phytochemical analysis and value addition of mountain herbal berries at the Central Karakoram National Park, Gilgit Baltistan, as commissioned by EvK2CNR under the SEED project.
