My research falls within the realm of conservation biogeography, where I am exploring tiger connectivity within their range and examine how they are impacted by global climate change. Additionally, my research integrates a transboundary perspective, examining the intersection of climate change and connectivity.
When I am not doing research, I spend my time on wildlife photography and hiking in natural settings. I have a passion for exploring new wilderness areas and observing wildlife behavior in their natural habitats, which is another interest of mine apart from my research. Additionally, I enjoy playing cricket in my free time.
