IISER MASTER'S STUDENT
I am a master’s student at Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Tirupati. I always wonder how different bird species adapt to novel landscape changes across the world. I am interested in understanding the ecology of birds in these novel landscapes. Currently, I am studying the impacts of exotic timber plantations on the Shola Sky Island birds of the Western Ghats using occupancy sampling and passive acoustic monitoring. I am also interested in mapping different landscape features using the Geographic Information System.
Projects Involved: Sky Island Birds, Passive Acoustics of Shola Birds
PERSONAL AND OTHER INTERESTS
Birding has become a part of my lifestyle, I do it all the time. Apart from it, I love cooking and travelling. Whenever I visit somewhere I always try to bring back with me a recipe which is unique to that place. I spend most of my free time watching series and movies. I also love to do event management. My other interests include singing, partying and farming.
