Manisha K.C. is currently pursuing her master’s degree at the Central Department of Hydrology and Meteorology, Tribhuvan University, Nepal. She is conducting her thesis on the Budhi Gandaki hydropower and reservoir project, testing the preliminary feasibility of the site. She has been involved in hydrological field research, conducting field surveys and studying river discharge. K.C. was also part of a field team that conducted meteorological analysis and studied CO2 concentrations at Lumle, Nepal.
Qiuhua Liang is Professor of Water Engineering at Loughborough University, UK. He received his DPhil in computational hydraulics from the University of Oxford in 2005. Before joining Loughborough in 2018, he was Professor of Hydrosystems Modelling at Newcastle University, UK.Liang has extensive experience in developing/applying high-performance computer models for predicting natural hazards and assessing their risks. He has worked as a principle investigator or co-investigator on more than 20 major research grants, including some international collaborative research projects in South/Southeast Asian countries such as Nepal. He has published nearly 200 research articles, including over 100 peer-reviewed papers in leading journals.
