I have been with IOD PARC in its Nepal and South Asia Portfolio since September 2018. I have a wide array of experience working with quantitative and qualitative evaluation techniques, covering multi-dimensional issues including climate change, migration, emergency and DRR resilience building, and market development. At IOD, I have worked in consulting with the FCDO/British Embassy’s Resilience Portfolio Nepal, OECD Evaluations, Nepal Red Cross Society for Humanitarian Action, UNICEF Nepal, UNICEF Children Affected by Migration in Southeast, South and Central Asia, WFP-LERP Covid-19 Livelihood and Economic Recovery Project, Building Resilience programme under Dan Church Aid Nepal, KPMG-BRACED Impact, Verite, ICIMOD, UNICEF-Nigeria and EQUALS FCDO-UK.

I am a trained economic analyst with my academic background being Masters in Economic Policy from Central European University (CEU), Hungary. This led me to stronger engagement with economic policy and research, with a focus on designing, implementing, and analysing different levels of datasets, and performing complex econometric analysis for research projects and a thesis on Bond Market Development and Economic Growth: Experience of East Asian Economies (Autoregression model, Panel regression and granger causality test).
