Dr Kishor graduated from Dhaka Medical College affiliated with the University of Dhaka, the oldest and the best medical college and university in the country. He decided to pursue career in public health research due to high infectious disease burden, scarcity of diagnostic and treatment facilities, and low per capita expenditure for healthcare in his country. He started his career in research by joining the emerging infection program of icddr,b (International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh), in 2011 as a research fellow. Since then he has developed extensive research skills in the surveillance, epidemiology, and biostatistics which are relevant to tropical diseases affected by climate change. Bangladesh is one of the countries most adversely affected from anthropogenic climate change in the Asia-Pacific region. Preparedness and adaptation efforts are limited by lack of substantial prediction of future climate change effects on infection transmission and outbreaks. During this research at UNSW, he aims to develop mathematical models to get key insights about climate change in the region and their effect on pathogens, host/vectors and environmental factors facilitating transmission to forecast the risk of future epidemics in Bangladesh.
