Profile: Fascination for the sea and its creatures and a perfect opportunity to work on sea turtles resulted in a Master’s thesis on green sea turtles in Sri Lanka. Following the M.Sc., I have worked in India (Odisha and Maharashtra) on olive ridley turtles (2012-2015, 2017) and Costa Rica (Tortuguero) on green turtles (2016).

My main interest is understanding sea turtles and their ecology in the Indian waters and using this information for their conservation. In addition, I enjoy working on community based conservation projects as it gives me an opportunity to interact with local communities and learn traditional conservation practices and beliefs.

Currently, I am working on a green sea turtle monitoring project to develop conflict mitigation techniques and conserve sea grass communities in the Lakshadweep Islands.
