Devica Ranade

Project Manager, Education and Public Engagement

During my PhD at Centre for Ecological Sciences (IISc), I studied competition in females of the classically polygynous peninsular rock agamas. Following my PhD, I founded ‘EcoRE’ (Ecology Research Explained), with an aim to popularize ecology research through attractive slides, fun videos and simplified text articles. In the past, I have also worked on the behaviour of meerkats and giraffes in South Africa. At Education and Public Engagement Program (EPE) of NCF, I am working part-time and am leading the Collaboration and Capacity building program. When I am not working, I am busy attending to the demands of my 2.5 year old son 😊
