Savanna-forest boundary in Western Ghats, India

About Me

​​​​I am a Ph.D. student at Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University, working in the  Staver Lab. I received my BS in Physics from Indian Insitute of Science (Bangalore) where I did my undergraduate thesis with Dr. Vishwesha Guttal.

I am broadly interested in understanding distribution patterns of organisms across space and time, and the ecological and evolutionary processes that generate those patterns. For my Ph.D., I am working on understanding how local spatial processes, such as dispersal, shape large-scale biogeographic patterns of savanna and forest, using a combination of theoretical and empirical approaches.
