Favourite thing to do in engineering: Troubleshooting programs
I am a scientist who believes in passion and dedication.
I was born in Nepal, finished my studies from USA and currently working in Galway. I love to make traditional Nepalese food and serve people. I am passionate about traveling and exploring cultures around the world. In my free time, I read books and watch documentaries.
I am a scientist working in remote sensing of environment.
I work with satellite images to study the environment. I use big satellite images to study past and present condition of the environment. I used programming to write codes for computers which will process these big data sets.
My Typical Day
I process satellite data and read scientific articles.
In a typical day, I am processing the satellite data and doing research on latest techniques and practices in our field. Processing and writing the code involves testing, troubleshooting and asking other people who are working in our field through online scientific forums.
What I'd do with the money
I like to spend on STEM engagement event.
With the prize money I win, I would like to organize the student and parents event where we will raise awareness about STEM field not just to the students, but to the parents as well. The full day event will focus on presenting interesting science projects that students will develop individually or in a group. The students and parents will vote the best STEM project that will be awarded.
