Welcome...

dr. D.B.P. Shrestha (Dhruba)

Assistant Professor

Research

Dr. Shrestha is involved in the research related to the effects of land cover/land use change and extreme rain on land degradation studies (e.g. soil erosion, salinity, flash floods) and the spatial modelling for assessing soil losses. On these topics he supervises MSc and PhD researchers. To date he has supervised successfully more than 60 MSc theses.
