What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
When I enter ICIMOD main gate, I enjoy seeing the beautiful green lawn with different beautiful flowers and trees and the greetings from guards also make me feel nice. The diverse-cultured teams, the daycare facility and good office environment with a non-smoking office area motivates me to work at ICIMOD.
What are you passionate about?
I enjoy reading spiritual books and I often wonder about life and the after life.
I have about 24 years of work experience coordinating, managing, and supporting administrative, logistical and financial works. I also have work experience in desktop publishing and data entry. I originally joined ICIMOD under the Mountain Risk Engineering and Mini Micro Hydropower projects and also worked in our beekeeping project for more than one decade. Prior to joining ICIMOD, I worked for about 4 years in SIRAC Software (P) Ltd. and I hold a Bachelor’s degree in science from Nepal.
