Brief Bio 

My name is Susan Thapa. I was born and raised in Nepal. I completed my secondary-level education in Biratnagar, Nepal. Likewise, I completed a bachelor’s in agriculture science from Purbanchal University, Nepal and a Master’s of Research from Victoria University, Melbourne Australia. In my previous role as a graduate research assistant, I used scoping reviews to evaluate various characteristics and mechanisms of advertisement that impact health-related outcomes. Outside of academia, I love reading books and surfing the internet.

Research Interests 

I had a predilection towards using both qualitative and quantitative methods to solve various research questions. Now, my research interests have morphed, and I envisage using various econometrics tools to evaluate the data mostly related to economics, digital health technologies, ageing, housing, care, mobility and closely related fields. To chase new interests, I am learning various data analysis skills using suitable software such as R-studio and Python.
