I did my medical school in Nepal. Living in Nepal for six years, during the civil war, changed my life inculcating interest in emergency and trauma care, disasters, and humanitarian crisis. I did my postgraduate emergency medicine residency in India. During his third year of residency, was appointed as a tutor in the emergency department and was also responsible for coordinating the research activities in the emergency department including his peers and juniors.
I moved to Boston, MA in August 2011 as a postdoctoral research fellow in disaster medicine at Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. As a post-doc, most of my research work was focused on building disaster resilience in Haiti and later on disaster response and humanitarian assistance in The Philippines and currently in Nepal.
Understanding the role of public health in post-disaster and humanitarian crisis scenario and the need to develop my research skills, I did my masters in public health from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg school of Public Health. Currently looking forward to the opportunity to utilize the in-depth knowledge and skills I learned in public health, research process and methodologies, health in crisis and humanitarian assistance.
