"I love to blend conventional thinking with contemporary examples to help people learn,love and live the as they experience and explore science to enhance their knowledge and skills. I have taught my juniors and kids from economically weaker sections wherver I have lived. When I was in my tenth grades in Delhi Public School, Nepal, I taught my juniors and neighbors. I also taught for Nature conservation and wildlife up in trans-Himalayan region during my volunteer internship in Project Snow Leopard. I have always enjoyed teaching.Even when I was preparing for my Graduate school and medical entrance exam I taught juniors and middle school kids in Kolkata,India. I see teaching as interactive sessions to grow mutually and keep learning new things. About me: I am a life science enthusiast and love to explore and experience science from a naturalists point of view, from micro to marco level, along with observing the role played by environment towards shaping the life history of an organism.I wish to work in an integrated approach of field based study combined with lab works.I was brought up in the lap of Himalayas, which leaves a deep impression in me to care for nature in general and life in particular. Fortunately, I was able to work and have experience on wide range of topics ranging from wildlife and conservation biology on the Himalayas to genetics and related molecular biology in sophisticated labs of some premier Institutes in India and abroad. I am open to learn and explore new things and would love to be involved in some organismal biology research in near future. I also wish to make science, easily perceivable by the society. Areas of interest: Functional ecology, evolution, wildlife biology, physiology, infection biology, marine biology and neuroscience" less...
