"I want to get out in the water. I want to see fish, real fish, not fish in a laboratory." The famous quote by Sylvia Earle, Oceanographer.

To find the foundation of my love for nature, I didn't have to look far. My eyes fell upon a whole host of fascinating different aquatic organisms, seen and unseen they create a brilliant miniature ecosystem with billions of tiny processes and reactions for me to sit and unpick. Ecology is definitely an area that I would like to explore further as I have always shown a specific interest in aquatic environment. My journey with fishes started during my graduation. During my postgraduate studies I worked on marine fish diversity, especially in batoids on the southwest coast of India. Currently I am working on the Diversity and Distribution of fishes of the Agasthyamala Biosphere Reserve, Western Ghats.
