Biodiverity Conservation, Agricultural Landscapes
My past research has focused on biodiversity conservation
within agricultural landscapes, previously conducting research
within the heavily-modified tea plantation landscape of the
Nilgiris District in Tamil Nadu State, India. At UMBC, I am
looking to refine my research within the context of the
Lab for Anthropogenic Landscape Ecology and
ask questions related to the persistence of biodiversity within
agricultural landscapes and other human-managed ecological
systems. To approach this research, I use both qualitative as
well as quantitative social and ecological research methods to
address how people manage landscapes and what impacts land use
decisions can have on biodiversity patterns and processes.
