I lead the tiger conservation portfolio at the World Wide Fund for Nature - India, that focuses on species recovery, connectivity conservation, human-wildlife conflict and coexistence, habitat management, community-based conservation, protection and law enforcement. I work on science, policy and program development for the former four elements. In addition to this, I also help steer WWF-India's Coexistence Initiative. My academic training has been in ecology and conservation biology. And currently, I have a growing interest in designing and evaluating conservation programs in socio-ecological systems.
