Senior Project Assistant, Eastern Himalaya

B.Tech.

I am an Aerospace Engineer who shifted to the field of wildlife 6 years ago and have been working since then in various landscapes of India. My past experiences involve working with local communities along the Chambal River for the conservation of Gharials. I have worked on waterbirds in Warangal, gliding lizards in Western Ghats and small mammals in Kashmir. I am immensely fascinated by rivers and have had the privilege of working on 5 beautiful waterscapes of Chambal ,Yamuna, Cauvery, Gandak and Son. Aside from these, I love studying birds and reptiles as well as painting them.
