Graduate Teaching Assistant
University of Georgia
I received my Masters's degree in Environment and Development from the School of Human Ecology, Ambedkar University Delhi in 2016 and a Bachelor's degree in Commerce (Hons.) from the University of Delhi in 2012. My master's research focused on the spatial response of a wild herbivore species, Kiang (Equus kiang) to a nomadic-pastoral-indigenous community, Changpas, in the Rhupshu region (Changthang) in Ladakh, India. After my master's, I worked with the Wildlife Institute of India, Dehradun, India from 2018-21. In this project, we developed a Landscape Management Plan for Greater Panna Landscape in Central India. These experiences shaped my research interests in environmental anthropology, politics of (knowledge, translation, and scale), landscape connectivity, etc. I plan to conduct my doctoral research on the interactions between humans and wildlife with reference to landscape connectivity programs in Central India.
