As an aspiring economist with a passion for data science, I am committed to using data-driven insights to address local and global challenges and promote sustainable development. Recently, I graduated from Kathmandu University with a B.A. in Economics and have completed three or more internships in leadership, academic research, and community building. Currently, I am an Operations Manager at EA Kathmandu University. I also have experience working with think tanks, such as the Institute for Integrated Development Studies-1979, the oldest think tank in South Asia, where I collaborated with teams to design and implement programs aimed at performing local priority research and promoting policy advocacy.
Happy to chat about economic policies in LMICs, meta ethics, movement building, and many other things.
Happy to be connected and involved!
If you have any relevant knowledge, resources, or connections that you would like to share with me, please do not hesitate to reach out.
As an organizer of EA Kathmandu University, I particularly found the insights on focusing on cities and attracting a talent pool, as well as the importance of finding early adopters, to be valuable takeaways. It's great to hear about the unique challenges and opportunities faced by our fellow EA groups in Asia, and I appreciate the emphasis on good over perfect, as there is no one-size-fits-all approach to building EA groups, and we need to be willing to learn and iterate as we go.
Think globally, adapt locally! Effective altruism is all about making a positive impact in the world, and contextualization research is like the salt and pepper that add flavor and make your altruistic endeavors truly delicious! Community builders and EAs from LMICs would definitely love this!
