Congratulations to Dr Krishnapriya Tamma for the National-Post Doc Fellowship from SERB to work in our lab.
Krishnapriya will work on analysing various remotely sensed images of vegetation to understand and to predict tipping point phenomena natural forests across the world.
Priya Tamma is not really new to our lab. She was already on a postdoctoral position in our lab from April 2016. This fellowship gives her additional three years to continue her work. This will also allow her to pursue newer directions of research apart from primary focus areas of our lab. Apart from global scale analyses of vegetation, she is deeply interested in understanding biogeography, ecosystem patterns and conservation issues n North-Eastern India.
Before joining our lab, Priya Tamma did her PhD from our neighboring institution NCBS, in the lab of Prof Uma Ramakrishnan, on biogeography of Himalayan region. Check our her Google scholar profile to see her interesting publications.
