Assistant Professor, Mathematics

Background: I studied Continuum Theory (Topology) as a part of my PhD degree, while I worked on Hopfian Modules (Commutative Algebra) while completing my Master’s degree. I started teaching mathematics in Nepal since 2008 starting from primary levels to undergraduate levels. While doing my PhD, I taught various undergraduate courses at the Texas Tech University ranging from Pre-calculus to Calculus series.

About me: I am from a small, beautiful mountainous country Nepal, which is in South Asia filled with diverse landscapes, flora-fauna and cultures. I love mountains and I am enjoying my time here at Ruidoso.

I like to travel, play soccer and apart from mathematics I am quite interested in computing, in particular machine learning.
