Binod Heyojoo is a faculty member in the Department of Forest Products and Engineering at the Institute of Forestry at Tribhuvan University, Nepal. He has a keen interest in integrating geospatial tools and technology in forest and natural resources management. At WFI, his aims were to learn about wildfire management challenges, initiatives and success stories from the PNW to take lessons learned back to Nepal for their national forest fire management planning (video). Binod also intended to integrate these lessons into his university teachings.
Binod returned to his teaching duties as a professor at the Institute of Forestry (IOF) in Pokhara, Nepal. He will be starting his PhD in Forestry in June of 2018 at Tribhuvan University in Nepal. His PhD research thesis will expand on the project he did at WFI in Forest Fire Management.
