My research interests include the community ecology, biogeography and evolution of herpetofauna, particularly in montane landscapes such as the Western Ghats. I am interested in diversity and distributions over varied spatial and temporal scales. I also aim to work on the responses of herpetofauna to anthropogenic disturbances like land-use change and fragmentation, and thereby contribute to their conservation.
