Research interests are in human-tiger and human-wildlife conflict in areas east of Jaipur, India and east of Nagpur, India. Specifically, my research examines how conflict influences perceptions of conservation, animals and impacts spatial patterns in daily activities of those living with top carnivores. 

Secondly, I am interested in local community involvement in conservation efforts, specifically those living within tiger landscapes. In particular, how community leaders influence local attitudes towards protected areas, conservation, forest restoration, and activities like community forestry and community action against poachers or illegal settlers. 

Thirdly, understanding the mitigation and coping strategies surrounding human-tiger conflict within corridors (areas connecting wildlife populations that otherwise are separated by human-dominated landscapes) is a current area of study.
