I am a PhD student in the Ecology and Environment Lab, and I joined the team in August 2019. My doctoral research focuses on understanding ecological adaptation of the Mugger Crocodile populations across three geographically diverse habitats within the state of Gujarat. I did my masters' from BVIEER in wildlife biology, and my dissertation was on understanding human-mugger conflict in the Vadodara district, Gujarat.
