I pursue reef related research with a critical eye and a fine-tuned appreciation for weirdness. I am particularly fascinated by marine life that exists within coral reefs but observes life outside the reefs with just as much wonder and amazement.

This blog is a space where I share my thoughts, opinions, underwater pictures and information on current issues and topics of interest within and outside of my field. The views and opinions presented here are mine and do not reflect the opinions of funding/research or any affiliated institutions.

Currently working with Wildlife Conservation Society-India. See the research page for more information !
