Nabin K. Malakar, Ph.D.

I am a computational physicist working on societal applications of machine-learning techniques.

Research Links

My research interests span multi-disciplinary fields involving Societal applications of Machine Learning, Decision-theoretic approach to automated Experimental Design, Bayesian statistical data analysis and signal processing.


Interested about the picture? Autonomous experimental design allows us to answer the question of where to take the measurements. More about it is here...


I addition to the research, I also like to hike, bike, read and play with water color.

Physics Students Departing from Nepal to USA for Fall 2009.

This year only about one and half dozen Nepali Physicists departed aboard for pursuing higher degrees. As we are aware, most of them do come to USA.
Here is what I have been able to collect so far...

Jagannath Devkota(USM)
Pushpa Pudasaini(USM)
Santosh K.C.(Texas)
Tulashi Dahal (Boston)
Ganesh Chand
Sanjeev Jha(NMSU)
Dilli Raj Poudel(NMSU)
Barun Gupta (University of Utah)
Bindu K.C (Idaho State Univ.)
Purushottam Tiwari (Florida)
Pooja Pradhan (U Toledo)
Kamal Dhungana (Michigan Tech)
Tek Basel (University of Utah)
Bhim Lal Poudel(Miami)
Dharma Raj Khatiwada (Minesota)
Hari lal Bhatta (Missouri state university)
Madan Lamichhane (Memphis)
While the business of list collecting is not unique in its nature, I would like to welcome fellow colleagues and wish them all the best for their future academic endeavor.
Thanks to Dilli, Jagannath and Smriti Jee.

US Chapter of Nepal Physical Society (US Co NPS)

An idea has been playing football in my mind for long time. We have had few discussions on personal level to some colleagues. I know that it will take long time for this idea to come true, however, writing on it should be OK...

Nepal Physical Society (NPS) should be proud as her members are growing and going aboard for further education with the aim to gain Degrees in prestigious Universities around the Globe.  Some informal data show that there are more than 250 Physicists aboard pursuing higher studies in countries like USA, Norway, Japan, Korea, India etc... Among them most of the mass is concentrated on USA.

It has been long realized the necessity of co-ordination between Physicists aboard and NPS. The communication has been on personal level and few activities also happen at personal level by personal interests/volunteers.

At this point, one can envision having a US chapter of Nepal Physical Society.
I think, many respected physicists are more knowledgeable on how to run a chapter. What we need is a widespread discussion on how to do it. The right time is coming, are we able to see it?

Being a proud member of NPS, I have been writing few stuffs related to nps, which can be found here... Please be advised that these are my personal views. One has utmost right to agree or dis-agree on it!

On the google map, we have been able to list about hundred people. The list keeps on growing as we come to learn about Nepali Physicists around the Globe. Please leave a comment with your Name, University, your URL, field of study/research. We will be glad to include you!
