Doctorate in Wildlife Institute of India
Wildlife Institute of India
Tryst with the animal world began for me through my lenses. I travelled to different parks across the country to come closer to this wilderness. I did my masters in statistics but my craving for the wild brought me to the Wildlife Institute of India. My first exposure to systematic field surveys was in the Tadoba Andheri Tiger Reserve. This gave me a brilliant opportunity to understand animal life in forest systems very closely. Experiences from field days intrigued my interest in ecological studies. Community dynamics in mammals and birds is my fundamental interest in this discipline. For my doctoral study I would like to optimize sampling efforts to survey terrestrial mammal community focusing on different methodologies. With progress in my research career I look forward to developing methodological innovations to design studies targeted for different animals.
