Environmental Systems and Policy
Dr. Mohan B. Dangi earned his Ph.D. and M.S. in geography and environmental engineering at the Johns Hopkins University. He received M.Sc. in environmental science and engineering and B.Sc. in chemical engineering with a minor in Asian studies and international politics from the Colorado School of Mines. A licensed professional engineer in Colorado, Dr. Dangi is an Assistant Professor of Environmental Systems and Policy in the Department of Geography at California State University, Fresno. His research interest encompasses across municipal solid waste management, urban-rural interface issues in developing countries, water/wastewater, and environmental change in mountain ecosystems. Some of this work has been published in peer-reviewed journals.
Since his internship in National Renewable Energy Laboratory in 1998-99, he has consistently tackled environmental issues in Nepal, thus completing five projects, instigating five memoranda of understandings between the US and Nepalese universities, and creating two engineering curricula. These tasks were funded by the Department of Energy, USAID, Environmental Research and Education Foundation, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the National Institute of Health (NIH). His work in international involvement and academic excellence has earned him National Student of the Year Award from the Phi Beta Delta (U.S.) and Gold Medal (Nepal). Recently, he has been invited to present this work extensively across the United States, Nepal, Mexico, Denmark, France, and Norway.
