Senior Research Fellow
About

I completed my Masters in Wildlife Biology and Conservation from National Centre for Biological Sciences, WCS-India Programme, Bengaluru, India.

I wish to continue my study on the long-term changes in ecosystem components and processes due to anthropogenic factors in Indian forests, and contribute towards conservation of ecosystems and biodiversity.

I have a special interest in grassland ecosystems, both low and high altitude, semi-arid and wet. Currently my interests are directed towards understanding the role played by anthropogenic fire and grazing in different habitat types, ranging from tropical seasonal forests to savannah woodlands to sub-tropical sub-alpine and alpine woodlands and grasslands.
