Development Policy and Practice (2021 Cohort)

I am interested in post-disaster reconstruction after Nepal’s 2015 earthquake. Post-disaster reconstruction in Nepal provides an important case study of how humanitarian and development work is changing and how a state builds back after a disaster. I am also interested in UN peacekeeping, development studies and disaster studies.

I studied my first degree at LSE and masters at SOAS. I have worked in Myanmar, Sudan, and South Sudan for the UN, DFID, and others. I have worked and lived in Nepal for over 10 years.
