Air Pollution Emissions Research Associate,
Water and Air
I am involved in various emissions measurement campaigns and the generation of emissions data from several air pollution sources in India, Nepal, and Pakistan. These data are then analyzed, published and disseminated to researchers, the public and policymakers for the formulation and implementation of effective plans and policies to mitigate air pollution problems.
How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
Since air pollution is a major problem in the HKH, my work helps to protect the pulse of the planet by reducing the impacts of air pollution on people and helping to save the environment of this region.
What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
The working environment and very cooperative colleagues.
What are you passionate about?
My passion is research and development generating solutions to air pollution impacts.
I hold a Master’s degree in Environmental Science from Tribhuvan University, Nepal, where I also worked as a research assistant and in various department-led research activities. I also previously worked in MinErgy as a program officer, was involved in research and development activities in the renewable energy sector and air pollution mitigation options, and served as a Science Teacher at Mansingh Dharma Higher Secondary School in Nepal.
