Senior Remote Sensing & Geoinformation Specialist,
Since I joined ICIMOD in October 2018, I have been leading the development, dissemination and application of remote sensing and geo-information services in the field of water resources and disaster risk reduction, coordinating with partners on user engagement and networking, leading the preparation and publication of research results, training materials, concept papers, project proposals, coordinating knowledge and capacity development events in water resources and disaster risk reduction.
How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
I leverage geospatial information technologies to promote sustainable mountain development and climate change adaptation.
What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
Living with the mountains and the people inhabiting them.
What are you passionate about?
Working with people at the fringe and in the lowest stratum of society.
I am a Bhutanese national and previously worked with the Royal Government of Bhutan. I am technically an engineering environmentalist but also think of myself as emotionally grounded in basic human nature while professionally I am geography oriented and I hold a Master’s degree in conservation sciences.
