Flood Modeller Associate,
Water and Air
I work currently as a flood modeler associate within the Water and Air Theme, focusing on flood modelling and forecasting; setting up an operational flood forecasting system in various river basins; flood inundation mapping and evaluating the performance of the flood outlook. I am also involved in vulnerability assessment and risk assessment works in flood-prone river basins.
How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
I protect the pulse of the planet through my work in the field of water-induced disaster risk reduction.
What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
The people from diverse backgrounds and traditions and the working environment makes ICIMOD a fun place to work.
What are you passionate about?
Apart from my work, I love trekking, travelling and playing table tennis. I’m an adventurous person who strongly believes that adventure feeds the soul.
Prior to joining ICIMOD, I worked in the Government of Nepal’s land use planning project, where my major responsibility was to work on flood models and generate flood inundation risk maps for flood-prone rivers of the Terai region for incorporation in land use zoning and planning for safe residential practices in the areas. Additionally, I also worked in climate change impact analysis, risk-sensitive land use planning of various municipalities and have also supervised various hydrological surveys. I hold a Master’s degree in meteorology with specialization in hydrological modeling. My master’s research was on climate change impact study using SWAT model.
I originally joined ICIMOD as an intern in a collaborative project organized by ICIMOD and NASA Develop National Program in coordination with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland in summer 2015.
