Hailing from a fast growing and developing India, I have experienced the imbalance between conservation and development activities. I have also realized the immediate need of science- backed research for implementation of appropriate and lasting conservation strategies in developing regions. As a Master’s of Environmental Management student at the Nicholas School, I am developing a strong natural science foundation in ecology with the added skill of geospatial analysis to further my career in international conservation work. Apart from academics, I am the President of the Duke Conservation Society and the Communications Representative on the Student Council, both of which are helping me engage with the Nicholas School network about wildlife management and conservation issues. When not at school, I indulge in chocolate, cook a lot of Indian food and appreciate cinema and the arts.
