Programme Coordinator, Regional Database System,
Mountain Environment Regional Information System (MENRIS)
As the Programme Coordinator of our Regional Database System (RDS) initiative I oversee the development of databases, geospatial applications and information systems and I also contribute as a Geospatial Information Technology Lead for the SERVIR-HKH initiative.
How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
I protect the pulse of the planet through my work in the RDS initiative, disseminating data to the public, thereby enabling researchers and development practitioners to use the data for addressing various mountain issues and also through my work helping put together information systems that allow users to visualize data and obtain information useful for making informed decisions on various issues in the region.
What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
The thing I enjoy most about ICIMOD is an environment that allows me to keep up with the latest technological advancements in geospatial technology along with general IT.
What are you passionate about?
I love reading and travelling.
I have an MSc in geographic information science from University College London, UK and a postgraduate diploma in mathematical statistics from Cambridge University, UK which I pursued under the Nepal Cambridge Scholarship. Earlier, I completed my BSc from Tribhuvan University, Nepal and received the Mahendra Vidya Bhusan, a gold medal, for topping my batch in the university.
