Economic and Data Analyst
Strategic Group 2: Shaping Green and Resilient Mountain Economies
SG2 – Action Area C (AAC): Adapting and Transforming Livelihoods and Economies
Currently, I work directly with our Air Pollution Solutions Initiative in exploring science-society linkages to understand air pollution impacts.
How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
My work is key to protecting the pulse of the planet since the livelihoods of us all – but especially mountain people – depend on sustainable ways of co-existing with nature and evidence that unravels the science-society linkages must more clearly and meaningfully affect policymaking towards sustainable livelihoods.
What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
The interdisciplinary nature of the work is what I enjoy the most at ICIMOD and the opportunity to work with colleagues from different themes, programmes and disciplines is very rewarding.
What are you passionate about?
I like to play futsal and travel in my spare time.
I have a Master of Arts degree in Economics from Eastern Illinois University, USA and a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and Economics from Linfield College, USA.
My work over the last decade has focused on research in the development sector, covering topics including health, education, governance, and environment. I have professional experience with The World Bank and J-PAL South Asia, MIT. My experiences as a researcher include running experimental and randomized control trial studies in Nepal and India, analyzing the data, and communicating the results to wider audiences. These professional experiences have always focused on making an impact in peoples’ lives through research work.
