I started work with the ongoing project on Dugongs in Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Currently, I work in the Lakshadweep Islands as part of a research team, looking at a component that falls under a larger coral reef resilience study. Primarily, my work focuses on how a climate-change induced decline in the structure of coral reefs impacts predation function and predator-prey interactions. Broadly, I'm interested in reef fish behaviour and coral reef ecology and over time, I hope to contribute to larger conservation efforts.
