Research Interests

Habitat fragmentation is the primary cause of the present extinction crisis in tropics. Our group is interested in understanding its impact on the survival of many endangered species in human-dominated landscapes by studying behaviour, demography, reproductive and stress physiology, and genomics. Our group is also interested in developing various biotechnological tools in biodiversity conservation including eDNA tools in the aquatic ecosystem for studying ecosystem services.
