Evolutionary Ecology · Global Change Biology
Welcome to my website!
I am an evolutionary ecologist broadly interested in the origin, maintenance, and functioning of diversity spanning individual organism levels to large spatial scales. I employ experimental, theoretical, and broad-scale comparative approaches to answer questions in ecology and evolutionary biology — mostly focused on animal coloration and signalling. But I have recently started to investigate how contemporary anthropogenic pressures and climate change are affecting global diversity patterns and underlying processes to inform conservation. Check out the Research tab for further details.
I am presently a Fulbright-Kalam postdoctoral fellow at the Wiens Lab, University of Arizona, United States. I was previously a PBC postdoctoral fellow at Conservation Biology and Biodiversity Lab, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. I completed my PhD at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Thiruvananthapuram (IISER-TVM), India, in the Vanasiri Evolutionary Ecology Lab.
