Welcome !

I am interested with researches involving the use of tools/techniques of geo-information science in the field of natural resources management and biodiversity conservation.

Currently, I am associated with the Department of Environmental Science and Engineering, Kathmandu University as a PhD Research Fellow under the NORHED SUNREM-Himalaya Project "Sustainable natural resource management for climate change adaptation in the Himalayan region". I am studying the impact of climate change on forest and water resources in Chure - Terai region of Nepal.

I am, intermittently, involved with university teaching and supervising also. Additionally, I also write on national newspapers and digital media on contemporary environmental issues and issues of national interest. 

Earlier, I worked for more than a decade with National Trust for Nature Conservation (NTNC) - a leading conservation organization of Nepal. In early career days, I was primarily involved in the application of GIS and remote sensing for protected area management, forest management, biodiversity assessment and glacier studies. Later, as a Senior Conservation Officer, I was mostly involved in programme planning, monitoring, supervising/co-ordinating project implementation.
