Sundar Sapkota had an eventful final semester as a biology graduate student at Eastern New Mexico University: he received second place at the New Mexico Academy of Science (NMAS) Research Symposium and successfully defended his thesis. Sundar, who received a bachelor’s degree in agriculture from Agriculture and Forestry University in Nepal in 2018, discusses his experience at ENMU and his plans for the future.
Both Sundar Sapkota and Sanjib Sapkota are active NMAS members. The two graduate students are brothers from Nepal, who are genuinely interested in agriculture research. Both graduated from my laboratory.
When Sanjib defended his thesis in 2018 he was immediately accepted into a Ph. D. program in Canada. He then encouraged his younger brother, Sundar, came to my lab for a MS thesis research. Not a long time ago Sundar defended his thesis and moved to NMSU, Las Cruces, for his Ph.D. program. Both of them have actively participated in the NMAS research symposium each year!
