Faculty, Azim Premji University
Madhuri works on nature-society relations in coastal spaces and is interested in inclusive, interdisciplinary approaches to conservation and sustainability. She began by studying the ecology of rare reptiles but with field experience, became interested in political ecology. Hence her recent work weaves together strands from the natural and social sciences, as well as the humanities. Her research has spanned diverse landscapes ranging from hill forests in the Western Ghats to arid grasslands in the Thar desert and densely inhabited islands in the Bay of Bengal.
She teaches in the School of Development, Azim Premji University, in Bengaluru. https://azimpremjiuniversity.edu.in/people/madhuri-ramesh
