Victoria's Journey to Nepal

Current Location

I'm Victoria and I traveled to Nepal to learn how the practice of medicine is adapting in response to climate change. I look forward to sharing my research and my adventures with you!


Kathmandu is a beautiful but smoggy "mile-high" city. The smog drifts up from India and gets trapped in this valley which worsens the local pollution.


When I travel, especially to special places like Chitwan National Wildlife Park, I like to spend time listening and watching.

Field Notes

Having good transportation is essential for moving supplies and humans from place to place in the challenging terrain of Nepal.


Did you know that most medicine comes from plants?

One part of my research includes learning about the medicinal plants that occur in Nepal, and how they are used by doctors to treat people.
