Policy Coordinator, Coexistence Consortium
I am a lawyer with a keen interest in environmental law and policy. I graduated from the National Law University, Jodhpur, in 2021 with honours, in Intellectual Property Rights. I believe deeply in the importance of climate accountability and the role of lawyers in ensuring that the solutions to the many challenges presented by climate change are achieved in a just and conscientious way. I have been immersed in conservation justice work for the last five years through wildlife crime cases, protected areas, human-wildlife conflict, sui generis protection for traditional knowledge, community forest rights, rat hole mining, etc.
I am currently working as a policy coordinator at the Coexistence Consortium. My work at the Consortium is to develop efficacious policy solutions for the management of human-elephant conflict. Prior to joining the Consortium, I worked as a lawyer at the Wildlife Conservation Society - India.
