I have broad research interests that span understanding causes and consequences of variation in life history strategies and biotic interactions. Through my research I strive to improve our ability to predict how these strategies and interactions are likely to shift with change in an organism's biotic and/or abiotic environment. I use a combination of field observations and experiments, lab experiments, and a range of quantitative tools including statistical and mathematical modeling. I am increasingly interested in scale-up my research to studying species at larger spatial and/or temporal scales. To do so, I am exploring quantitative tools including geospatial-, network-, and meta-analyses.
My PhD was in Biological Sciences with specialization in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior at the School of Biological Sciences, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA, in Dr Brigitte Tenhumberg's lab. Prior to that, I completed my Master's program in Wildlife Biology and Conservation, Wildlife Conservation Society – India Program at the National Center for Biological Sciences, India under the guidance of Dr Kavita Isvaran.
