I grew up in India in a sprawling 2400 Acre University campus, something that has contributed immensely to my interest in the outdoors. Several short term projects as an undergrad got me interested in working with Herpetofauna. I met Maureen as a freshman in India and joined the Donnelly lab to work towards a PhD in 2009. I am now particularly interested in studying how fragmented and highly managed landscapes support biodiversity.
Currently, I am based in the Southern Western Ghats where I study amphibian assemblages in different habitats in a fragmented active tea plantation. After a particularly dry sampling season last year, I am very excited about what look like promising monsoons this year.
This is a photoblog of things and events that interest me.
