Graduate Student Profile
Bachelor of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry (B.V.Sc. & A.H.) from Tribhuvan University, Nepal.
My active researches focus on defining the ecology of infectious diseases, particularly the food borne pathogens. I am now working on Listeria monocytogenes to define the population dynamics with respect to the various variable environmental factors. In defining the population dynamics of various food borne pathogens, I am using different research tools such as GIS, epidemiology and genomics. I am interested in defining the epidemiology of various foodborne infectious diseases using GIS, genomics and molecular biological techniques.
