While completing my Bachelor’s in Environmental Studies an Policy in Pune, I worked part time with Oxford’s Centre for Experimental Social Sciences designing interventions for addressing cases of domestic violence in Maharashtra. At Dakshin, I work as a Project Assistant with the Andaman and Nicobar Environment Team. We began our research with trying to understand the governance of Marine Protected Areas in the Andaman Islands, and now focus on the role of tourism in governing natural resources on the islands. I am keen on exploring the relationship between “development” of tourism and the conservation and management of natural resources, and am now looking at how the islands are handling them both with their current systems of public infrastructure.
