I'm a PhD candidate studying wildlife ecology 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'm conducting fieldwork in Kanha Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh, central India, to examine landscape variation in predation risk from carnivores on cattle, buffalo and goats.
