Tsewang Namgail

Research Associate, High Altitudes

I obtained a BSc degree from the Jammu University in 1995, and MSc from the Punjab University, Chandigarh, in 1998. Thereafter, I pursued wildlife science at the University of Tromso, Norway, and obtained an MPhil degree in 2001. My research interests include community ecology, macroecology, behavioural ecology and human dimensions of wildlife. Heretofore I worked on agricultural pests, resource partitioning amongst mountain ungulates, wildlife-livestock interactions, carnivore-human conflicts and plant-herbivore interactions. Presently, I am a PhD student at the Wageningen University, the Netherlands, and my research focuses on the large herbivore diversity in the western Indian Trans-Himalaya. I also collaborate with the International Snow Leopard Trust in conserving the snow leopard and its prey species.
