I am an ecologist with special interest in the study of rock outcrop habitats. My work includes networking with individuals and organizations focusing on conservation of this special habitat and identifying practices for sustainable management for outcrops in the human-dominated landscapes. Since 2013 I have taught trans-disciplinary subjects discussing human-environment interactions at post-graduate and PhD levels. Currently I am Red List Authority, Coordinator for IUCN (SSC) Western Ghats Plant Specialist Group and member of the Maharashtra State Biodiversity Board. My research papers and articles (more than 20) are openly available.
