Bibek Kandel is a Biotechnology graduate from Kathmandu University, Nepal. He worked on a project entitled "Phytochemical, antimicrobial, antioxidant and anticancer activities of medicinal plants found in Nepal" as part of his degree. Currently, he is working as a science teacher in a rural public school of Nepal as a Teach for Nepal science fellow. Teach for Nepal aspires to end education inequity between public schools and private schools and envisions a strong learning platform for science, solving a profound research and community problem in Nepal at school level. Bibek strongly believes that if Nepalese junior scientists are empowered from early childhood with research and critical thinking abilities, Nepal will get a diverse troop of scientists leading science learning beyond the horizon.
