Dr. Nasima Selim is an anthropologist, writer, educator, and researcher. She navigates the terrains of knowledge and praxis in medical anthropology, global health, public anthropology, and anthropology of Islam in and across Western Europe and South Asia.

Creative writing (non-fiction and fiction), reflexive-non-hierarchial pedagogy, and interdisciplinary collaborations inform her scientific and literary aspirations. Her current ethnographic book project is titled "Wayfaring hearts: Sufi healing practices in Germany". She is also working on a postdoctoral research project titled "Who has the right to breathe? The politics of respiration and pandemic lifeworlds in South Asia".

Nasima co-founded the working group AG Public Anthropology of the German Anthropological Association, DGSKA. She is a member of the working group Medical Anthropology of DGSKA and the European Association of Social Anthropologists, EASA. A former physician and public health professional trained in South Asia, Nasima is also a member of the Public Health Association of Bangladesh.

Nasima is currently a postdoctoral research associate at the department of anthropology, University of Bayreuth. She previously worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology, Freie Universität Berlin; Senior Lecturer at the James P Grant School of Public Health, Brac University; Senior Medical Officer at Monon Psychiatric Hospital, Dhaka; and Assistant Registrar at the Mental Hospital, Pabna, Bangladesh. She spent a research fellowship year at the Center for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta, India.
