Alumna, Post-Graduate Programme in Wildlife Biology and Conservation, WCS-India and National Centre for Biological Sciences, Research affiliate - Oceans and Coast Programme, Nature Conservation Foundation

Currently working in the Lakshadweep archipelago, studying how functional herbivores contribute to reef recovery processes. A part of my research also explores how structural changes in reef habitat (a consequence of mass coral bleaching events) affects distribution of herbivorous fish across reef depth gradients.

Currently pursuing a PhD in understanding impacts of overfishing on fish populations on the west coast of India. Also working in the Lakshadweep archipelago, documenting traditional fishing practices and how they change over time.
