Professor Shonil Bhagwat

About me

Shonil Bhagwat is an environmental geographer with broad research interests at the cross-section between natural and social sciences. At the most fundamental level, he is interested in understanding people's interaction with their natural environment. This broad intellectual project is undertaken, conceptually and empirically, by examining how humans can live in their natural environment with non-human species in a world that is highly human-dominated.
