I am a PhD student looking at effect of human dimensions on  bird population at a regional scale. I broadly interested in understanding how specific species are being affected by anthropological activities over time. I am also interested in understanding how communities preceive the conservation value of different species and how other factors stack up against charismatic value. 

I recently graduated with MS in Conservation Biology from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, Syracuse, NY as a Fulbright Scholar. I also have a MSc in Zoology from Tribhuvan University in my home country Nepal. I have over 13 years of experience working in social/conservation field including nearly 3 years at a landscape level conservation project of Nepal Govt./WWF (Terai-Arc) and three years spearheading the recovery of Critically Endangered vulture species in Nepal working for Bird Conservation Nepal a Birdlife International partner. I have experience of work in community-based conservation, non-formal education, adolsecent reproductive health, indigenous rights, poverty alleviation among others.
