Back to overview

My life revolves around education and innovation. I offer arts education courses for bachelor and master students at the Department of Arts and Culture Studies. Besides learning about arts education, these courses aim at encouraging students to personalize their learning trajectory. Premised on engagement theories, I strive at motivating students to personalize their assignments, which significantly increases academic course engagement. 

Currently, I hold a professorship on ‘Blended Learning’ at Codarts University of the Arts. In this position, I research the ways in which digital tools can improve artistic learning and teaching in the fields of dance, music and circus. In addition, I am the director of School of Performing Arts Kathmandu, founded in 2011. After the destructive earthquake in 2015 this institute mainly focuses on providing music therapy for homeless children and performing arts classes for government schools and orphanages.
