Higher Degree by Research Candidate

School of Public Health

I am a public health researcher with specific interest and experience in infectious disease epidemiology, environmental health, disease surveillance and clinical microbiology. My research focuses on diagnosis, distribution and transmission of microbial pathogens of clinical importance and understanding the role of environmental factors in disease transmission. I use molecular, statistical and qualitative research techniques to understand biological, environmental and social determinants of infectious diseases and associated health problems.

For my PhD project, I am exploring available evidence on the association between climate change and infectious disease in Kathmandu, Nepal; with an aim to improve surveillance capacity in the context of changing climate.
