I am presently the conservation scientist at the Snow Leopard Trust. As a part of my role, I support research and conservation activities of the Trust across the snow leopard range. My research interests lie in understanding human-nature relationships and community governance. For my PhD, I worked on how people use, value and manage ecosystem services across the snow leopard range. I also have experience in community-based conservation. I am also a fellow on the assessment of multiple values for nature conducted by the Intergovernmental science-policy Platform on Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity (IPBES).
