I was selected for the PhD fellowship programme at ICIMOD and focus here on source apportionment of physical and chemical properties of aerosols in Nepal (both Kathmandu and the Indo-Gangetic Plains) and their impact on human health.
How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
Life-forms are the most important constituent of the biosphere and my research on the impacts of increasing pollution on human health, contributes to protecting the pulse of the planet.
What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
I really enjoy the work culture at ICIMOD and interacting with different people coming here, from across the world.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about enjoying nature’s beauty, spirituality, and music.
Currently, I am pursuing a PhD at CSIR-National Physical Laboratory, New Delhi, India. The topic of my PhD research is “Physico-chemical properties of atmospheric aerosols: implications for human health.” I earned an M.Phil. from the Central University of Gujarat, India and completed a Master’s degree in Environmental Sciences from the Central University of Rajasthan, India. I was a gold medalist in Botany Honours during my graduation and I firmly believe that learning is a never-ending process.
