Biodiversity 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.
