Srinivas Vaidyanathan

Senior Fellow
About

Srinivas is a wildlife biologist with particular interest in understanding changes in landscape level processes and structure and how the same affect large mammal populations and distributions. He is a guest faculty at the M.Sc course in Wildlife Biology and Conservation at National Centre for Biological Sciences, where he has been co-guiding students for their Master's thesis. Srinivas's expertise is varied, ranging from using a spatial approach to understanding various ecological and environmental questions to finding innovative and practical solutions to conservation problems.
