I have always admired nature since childhood. Only when I grew did I realise that I wanted to go beyond admiring and know more about it and preserve it. I did my Masters in Biotechnology from University of Mysore. Here, I could appreciate nature’s beauty at a molecular level; it was fascinating to understand what happens inside a cell. After my Masters, I moved on to see things at a population level. I am interested in the ecology of mammals and I have mostly worked on felids at a population and individual level. I am also interested in understanding the interaction between felids and humans where their occurrence overlaps. At times when I am not doing anything, I go back to just admiring.
