About me

I am a conservationist based in Nepal. Currently, I am leading a conservation non-profit called Greenhood Nepal. Previously, I have worked at Lancaster University as a Research Associate (2016-2017) and Biodiversity Fellow at the University of Oxford (2017). I have completed MSc in Environmental Management from Pokhara University (2014) and recently graduated from the University of Cambridge with an MPhil in Conservation Leadership (2020).

My research interests lie primarily in interdisciplinary conservation research covering law enforcement, wildlife trade, community-based conservation, conservation strategy & policy. I am active in Nepal's conservation community -- working to curb illegal wildlife trade, scale-up plants and pangolins conservation efforts and developing a new conservation community in Nepal. Further, I am keen to share conservation research in simpler ways and undertake interventions to inform conservation policy and actions on the ground.
