I study plant communities – especially those in the Himalayan Mountains – by mixing field studies, biodiversity databases, and statistical models. My research explores how environmental conditions influence plant diversity, functions and dynamics across various elevational and temporal scales.

I am also interested in diversity patterns, long-term phenology, species range dynamics, the responses of biological communities to natural and anthropogenic disturbances, and the implications for mountain ecosystem services. I am working on R and Python language programming for statistical analyses.
