Fulbright Fellow Dr. Amy Treonis at the Department of Environmental Science and Engineering, visiting from University of Richmond, Virginia, USA for a period of 5 months!

isms | 31 August, 2012 22:09

Dr. Amy Treonis is a soil ecologist and Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Richmond in Virginia, USA. She studies the diversity of organisms that live in soil and how they interact with each other, with growing plants, and with their environment. Her research focuses specifically on the ecology of soil nematodes, which are microscopic roundworms.  Nematode species diversity is massive but poorly understood relative to other types of animals (e.g., insects or mammals).  Dr. Treonis addresses questions regarding nematode communities and soil food web dynamics, using methodology that combines collection and experimentation at field sites, microscopy, and molecular biology.  Her experiments answer questions regarding the basic ecology of soil, as well as the biological responses of soil to agricultural management. 

Dr. Treonis completed her dissertation research at Colorado State University in 1999. For this work, she spent two field seasons in the Antarctic.   She then held a postdoctoral position at the Macaulay Institute in Aberdeen, Scotland, followed by a teaching position in the Biology Department at Creighton University (Nebraska, USA). She assumed her current position at the University of Richmond in Virginia in 2005.   

Dr. Treonis will be at Kathmandu University through December 2012.  In addition to teaching at the University, she will be studying nematode communities in Nepali soils

KU Welcomed International Students of Buddhist Studies

Dhulikhel

Kavre

Kathmandu University organized a welcome program for new International Students of Buddhist Studies at University premises Dhulikhel on 30 August 2012.

Addressing the program Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Suresh Raj Sharma said that Buddhist Studies is a very significant program to understand the Nobel person like Siddhartha Gautama and his philosophy of Buddhism which assist us to move on the path of Buddha, path of Dhamma, and the path of Sangha for peace, prosperity and the entire humanity.

Welcoming to the new students, Prof. Dr. Bhadra Man Tuladhar, Registrar of Kathmandu University, recalled past memories when Buddhist Studies was launched for the first time in the university. However, Lord Buddha was born in Nepal; hardly any institutions had started to teach about Buddhism and its proponents in university level. He expressed a very satisfactory remark over the expanding reputation of the program worldwide. Since a couple of years, KU is becoming a centre of attention to attract international students on its various programs. In 2011, there were 1,081international students out of 10,794 total enrollments.  These students were studying at KU’s own Six Schools as well as in other 15 affiliated colleges. Students exporting major five countries were India, Sri Lanka, America, German and Canada respectively. These students were representing from different 39 countries across the globe.

In the program, Mr. Greg Whiteside, Principal of Rangjung Yeshe Institute (known as Seto Gumba) and Student Counselor Ms Tina Lang were also presented.
