Shaurabh Anand is an ecologist, broadly interested in understanding human-wildlife interactions and their consequences for both humans and wildlife. His latest research work focuses on human-primate interactions and their drivers in the different geographies of India.
He has experience conducting field-based research using methods such as animal behaviour sampling, vegetation and habitat mapping, surveys, and interviews. He is keen on exploring the use of citizen science, remote sensing, and geographic information system (GIS) technologies for biodiversity assessment and conservation.
Shaurabh holds a PhD degree from the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bengaluru, and a Master’s degree in Natural Resources Management from The Energy and Resources Institute School of Advanced Studies (TERI SAS), Delhi.
