I am a development practioner with a particular interest on social change and indigenous development in the developing world. I have worked with various development organizations in Nepal and abroad in different capacities especially focusing on project appraisal and development. I have been a consultant and advisor for gender mainstraming projects implemented by CIDA/Nepal.
My passion to do PhD on gender and rural energy issues was built up, as I developed a deeper interest on household energy considering the time and energy spent by women for managing the household energy system in rural Nepal. I looked at the gender implications of alternative energy technologies particularly in terms of saving the time and labor of women, and improving their health conditions so as to increase their production and reproduction capacities.
