I am a doctoral researcher at iDiv/UFZ. My current doctoral research focuses on understanding the separate and interactive effects of fire and dominant native grasses on herbaceous and woody plant communities in tropical savannas. Prior to this, I worked at the Keystone Foundation and the Foundation for Ecological Security. In both, I was looking at the role of communities in natural resource management. Apart from this, as a guest lecturer I teach Masters students at School of Livelihoods and Development, TISS, Hyderabad.
