I study trees in Mudumalai, specifically how the interaction between environmental variation (primarily water availability) and between- and within- species trait variation explain their spatial distribution, growth, survival, and recruitment.

I joined Center for Ecological Sciences for the PhD program in the year 2011 under International Relation Center, IISc. Broadly, I am interested in Conservation biology. My work is based on stress biology, where I am trying to understand stress response in Asian elephants under various ecological parameters.

I am interested in understanding the role of large herbivores in cycling of nutrients in tropical forests. In collaboration with Pascal Jouquet at the Indo-French Cell for Water Sciences, IISc, we are looking at various dung insect communities involved in dung decomposition and their functional importance. Our study is a mix of field work coupled with various nutrient analysis and nutrient experiments.

After my masters at IISER in 2012, to explore further, I joined Divecha Centre for Climate Change, IISc as a project assistant under the direction of Prof. J. Srinivasan and Prof. R. Sukumar. I worked on the biomass projections of dominant canopy trees of Mudumalai tiger reserve. During this project, an ever increasing interest in ecology pushed me to write the PhD entrance exam of IISc and finally, in Aug 2013, I joined as a PhD Student in Center for Ecological Sciences, IISc under the guidance of Prof. R. Sukumar.
