Research Interests

I am a batrachologist with research interest in variety of fields in science. My research is mainly focused on behavioural ecology and natural history studies in anuran amphibians of the Western Ghats, India. Reproductive behaviour in species of Micrixalidae, Nyctibatrachidae, Ranixalidae and Rhacophoridae fascinates me.

My current research is on Urban Ecology looking at processes that drive diversity and distribution in urban environment. I integrate landscape ecology in all my research.

I use R, QGIS and MaxEnt tools in my research.
