Krishna Prasad Adhikari was born in Pokhara, Nepal where he later earned his bachelor‘s degree in Science and Technology with a minor in Microbiology. After his Bachelor‘s, he completed a course in Medical Laboratory Technology from Institute of Medicine in Nepal. Krishna was the valedictorian of the Science and Medical Laboratory department of Tribhuvan University in 2003. Working as a chief instructor in Kathmandu School of Medical Technology, Krishna worked as a Medical Technologist for research projects that focused on infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Malaria and other parasites. He also worked as Medical Technologist for the Government of Nepal. During the different project works, he felt he was missing the specific knowledge he needed to carry out the projects at his best, even though he has good knowledge about medical science. In some cases, he was lacking theory, and in others, he was missing research skills. On the whole, he was missing a social science basis. Due to his keen interest in community medicine, Krishna was looking for the suitable discipline for the further study when he found the M.A. degree Health and Society in South Asia at the University of Heidelberg, which he found suitable to his needs and desires. His M.A. thesis is entitled "Social marginality and its consequences on health: A comparative study between dalits and brahmans in Pokhara, Nepal". After obtaining his M.A. degree, he has been working as a medical technologist in a hospital in Heidelberg. Currently, Krishna is conducting his postgraduate studies in Epidemiology at the University of Mainz.
