Ripon Kumar Adhikary

BSc (Fisheries), MS (Fisheries Management)
PhD Candidate


Ripon’s research at the Research School of Population Health aims to explore the links between water quality and waterborne diseases in Australia. This study will focus on using spatio-temporal models to look at geographic variation as well as time-series methods to look at long term trends in water quality and health outcomes.
