At CHRS, he contributed to and managed several mixed-methods, multi-sited, research projects that focused on the topics of structural interventions in health, Global Health, and health and development. Nimesh started his professional career as a development practitioner (2004-2008) in his home country Nepal, which continues to inform his research projects. His research focuses on south-Asia, especially Nepal.
