Shaer started his writing career with The Rising Stars, the former youth magazine of The Daily Star. After joining full-time, this Dhaka University Economics major has been a crucial part of Shift, Bytes and Next-Step - the automotive, technology and career pages of the paper. When he isn't reviewing the latest cars to hit the local market or day-dreaming about the potential of 5G, he's usually seen staying back late at night, hammering out data visualisations for Star Weekend. Based on the number of screens and touch sensitive surfaces you can usually find around him, it's safe to say he welcomes the robots that will rule humanity in the future. In official capacity, however, Shaer currently serves as the Deputy Digital Editor of The Daily Star, digitally repackaging print stories, producing online exclusive news and features, data driven interactives and more.
