After completing Bachelor’s in Electronics and Communications Engineering from Kantipur Engineering College (2003-2007) I was involved in the management of Brain Works Learning Solution Center Pvt. Ltd., then Microsoft Gold Certified Partner for Learning Solution as the Program Director. Professionally I was involved in the conceptualization and establishment of the organization as well as creating management & Technological awareness among the customers from academic sectors, government bodies, and IT industry of the country and organizing several high-end training & support. From 2008-2009, I was the Community/Academic Lead at Microsoft Nepal. I was engaged voluntarily in Information Technology Society Nepal as Secretary, First Vice President, and president from 2007 to 2018. I was also the coordinator and founder of the “Education with ICT ” project under ITS-Nepal, whose mission was to promote ICT-enabled education in public schools.
I did my Masters in Information and Communications Engineering from the Technische Hochschule Mittel-Hessen (THM), Germany (2012) with a focus on electronic communication and Matlab/LabView based projects. I have been engaged as an adjunct faculty member at different colleges/universities teaching engineering and management graduates since 2013.
I joined Teach for Nepal in 2014 as a Recruitment and Selection Manager. Producing 7 cohorts of outstanding fellows (350 fellows from 43k registrations) my work has impacted the lives of more than 30k students and significantly improved our schools’ overall outcome. Currently, I am engaged in the organization as Operation and RSM Director on prioritizing the organization’s four strategic goals beside other engagements.
I did my second Master in Development Management from the Asian Institute of Management in the Philippines (2018).

I am in the process of completing a Master of Science in Applied Economics (MSAE) at Brac University, Bangladesh. Through this master’s I want to deepen my understanding of how education can bring transformation through economics, education policies, and politics. I am also the board member of Nitisala which aims to support local and national governments in developing participatory policies and capacity building of different stakeholders in formulating those policies.
I am the founder chairman of BITS Ladder International Private Limited since 2013 A.D. The vision of the organization is to bridge the gap in the community by collaboration through education, innovation, and technology. During COVID we piloted a Smart learning project (virtual teaching-learning methodology). Through engagements like Stupreneure Conference, Foodathon, we intend to encourage youth entrepreneurship. The pandemic encouraged me to immerse myself in the community. I raised funds to support thousands of underprivileged individuals (LGBTQIA, single women, landless and Dalit families) from different districts with monthly food supplies and free health transportation services. The teaching-learning process of students was completed halted due to school closure for more than 1.5 years. It led me to constructed basic infrastructure with essential resources and pilot the “Innovative Learning Center” (ILC) in the community to complement school education.
My interest areas are organizational management, leadership, capacity building, strategy management, community, political economy, and educational engagements among others.
