Nyima has completed his MA in Anthropology from Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu (Nepal) and is currently working on a MA thesis exploring the relation between the social and physical mobility in the Walungnga community of Upper Tamor Valley, Nepal. His larger aim is to expand this research in order to gain a better understanding of how marginal communities situated at the frontiers of Nepal negotiate changing dynamics within the nation-state and the global sphere.
