As a Phd Student in the geography department, I am looking at the ways to incorporate various social, economic, and physical processes in understanding dynamics of water resources. My research lies at the intersection of social and physical science where I am interested in using geographical information system and spatial statistical approaches in understanding the social and natural resources. I am currently investigating how we can better understand the role of anthropogenic and natural factor at the landscape level in understanding water quality- physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of water. I came to the US to study MS in Geography from Nepal as a Fulbright Scholar. In Nepal, I did BS and MS in botany from the Tribhuvan University. My past research included investigating climate-vegetation relations in high altitude forest in the Himalayas and spatial climate vulnerability assessment of Nepal.
