I'm a PhD candidate studying animal ecology, behavior and conservation at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. I conduct my research in India as a Research Affiliate the Wildlife Institute of India.
I am primarily interested in exploring the roles that humans play in food webs and developing new perspectives for conserving wildlife and supporting the people that share their landscapes. My dissertation research asks: where are tigers and leopards most likely to attack livestock? I combine field-based observations with remote sensing to investigate carnivore hunting behavior and conflict with humans in Kanha Tiger Reserve.
