A curiosity about our planet and the world outside the one created by humans drew me towards organisations working on environment and ecology related issues. I lived in the Central Himalayas between 2014 and 2018, working as a Research and Communications Officer on a participatory action-research project that aimed to study innovations developed by smallholder farmers and strengthen traditional knowledge-based innovation systems to confront climate change. I am interested in how local and indigenous communities interact with their landscapes. My background in communications helps me engage with research and present it in different forms.

At Dakshin, I work on communications and programme development with the Biodiversity and Resource Monitoring Programme as well as coordinating the Turtle Action Group.
