Higher Degree by Research Candidate

Adelaide Dental School

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


I am an Orthodontist from Nepal interested in growth and development of craniofacial structures. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD at the Adelaide Dental School where I am exploring the development of dental occlusion from the primary to the permanent dentition among the Australian twins, particularly assessing the developmental impacts of genetic and environmental factors on occlusion, to better understand how we can intercept malocclusion.

PhD Project:

A longitudinal study of the development of dental occlusion and facial profiles of monozygotic and dizygotic Australian twins, from the primary to the permanent dentition.
