How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
I trust that circulating the knowledge and information generated by ICIMOD is helpful to researchers, policy makers, students, and general public and I help in protecting the pulse of the planet through my role in distribution and promotion.
What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
The working environment of ICIMOD is excellent. I especially enjoy that I get to interact with visitors on a daily basis and get to meet new people in outreach events. Making them happy by providing them the information or documents they seek makes me happy and I enjoy the opportunity to serve people by providing ICIMOD’s information on a timely basis.
What are you passionate about?
Living in a country where a popular saying is that “heaven is a myth, Nepal is real,” I feel fortunate to be able to travel since I am a very adventurous person who loves to explore new places and learn about local cultures.
I joined ICIMOD in 1993 and have worked in different capacities in different units including Administration, the Documentation, Information and Training Service (DITS) division, and I have been a member of the Knowledge Management and Communication team for over 25 years. Through this time of service, I’ve learned different aspects of dissemination and outreach and have had opportunities to assist in organizing numerous outreach events including book fairs, exhibitions, knowledge fairs, quiz contests, writing and drawing competitions, mobile photo exhibition (regional) and have in the last 5 years opportunities to assist in administrative work. I have studied management and hold a Diploma in application programming.
