Research interest:My career interests revolve around human-wildlife interaction in the context of natural resource use conflicts, governance and management. I am also interested to do research on wildlife-based tourism, ecotourism, tourism education and sustainable tourism development. I also do research to understand how volunteer tourism can be a sustainable form of tourism in terms of contributing to nature conservation and improving the well being of the host communities.
