How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
Our website is where most people go to find about us and our work, so strong, interesting, informative web content will communicate everything someone should know about us, who we are and what we do. I protect the pulse of the planet by keeping our website and other platforms in line with our branding to effectively promote all we collectively do and believe in and I am elated to have the responsibility.
What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
I have always felt that at ICIMOD I am empowered to experiment, to test things, and to seek and introduce new tools and technologies. I’ve established and continue to create or enhance systems and processes that support activities and integrate them into our work, using that innovation and learning space provided, which is my favourite part of my work and something that gives me continuous energetic drive.
What are you passionate about?
I am a sports and nature lover and enjoy watching and following various sporting events and when time permits do not miss taking short hikes or treks in the hills and mountain areas.
I have a Master’s of Engineering degree in Computer Science from the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand and a Bachelor’s degree (with Honours) in Electronics Engineering from National Institute of Technology (then Regional Engineering College), Trichy, India. I have previous work experience as a Systems Analyst at AIT, and as a Systems Developer in projects monitoring systems at the Ministry of Finance, Nepal.
I have altogether 26 years of work experience in the area of information management, information and communication technology (ICT) system design, development, integration, building knowledge sharing platforms, mobile applications development, website and web applications development and their execution and supervision, including leading the ICT team at ICIMOD. I have a certification as a Knowledge Management Practitioner from the Philippines and a certification on Mobiles for Development, a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) by the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. I had the pleasure to serve as a member of the panel of authors on all the printed editions of Digital Review of Asia Pacific and produced biennial reviews from 2002 – 2010 on ICT and ICT for Development in Nepal. I have also been a jury member in various national and regional ICT award functions, namely Manthan, mbillionth, Opendata and in a number of startup and hackathon events.
