I am a Conservation Biologist with Aaranyak. I have been working in Eastern India and specifically the northeastern states of India including the Eastern Himalayas. I have worked extensively on Amphibian and Reptiles taxonomy and ecology as well as the ecology of tigers and prey animals in this region. I am a biodiversity explorer and have published over 30 research articles in peer reviewed journals, two books on Amphibians and reptiles and dozens technical reports. I love challenges and that takes me to explore areas others find difficult.
My lab is involved in various ecological and conservation research including biodiversity inventory in the Eastern Himalayas and northeast Indian region. The lab is working on the following areas- 1. Tiger Ecology.2. Amphibian Ecology.3. Landscape Ecology.4. Biodiversity Inventory and Monitoring.5. Species distribution in the Himalayas and Climate Change Impacts.6.
