I am an Editorial Associate in the Knowledge Management and Communications Unit. I oversee ICIMOD’s general publications, which includes event-related materials, blogs, news, articles, and reports. I work with colleagues across the institution to ensure our knowledge products and outreach materials communicate key messages from our work in the HKH and beyond.
How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
Through my work, I bring science and society together and ensure that information on the mountains, their people, and environment reach a wider audience and are easily understood by all.
In my daily life, I try to be conscious of everything I consume and implement habits that help reduce my carbon footprint.
What do you enjoy the most about working at ICIMOD?
The people! I joined ICIMOD during the pandemic and despite the work-from-home modality, I felt very welcomed.
I also learn something new from my colleagues every day, which I am very grateful for!
What are you passionate about?
I love travelling, learning about different cultures, and discovering new cuisines. I’m always open to talk about books and animals.
What are your qualifications?
I have a bachelor’s degree in Economics and International Relations from Lawrence University, USA. I have been involved in the development sector, having held roles in fundraising, business development, communications, and research. Prior to working at ICIMOD, I was a Research Assistant at Nepal Institute for Social and Environmental Research and a Research Analyst at A2Z Insights.
