Dipanjan Naha, Ph.D.
My current research focuses on role of apex predators across diverse habitats, prey communities within natural and semi-natural ecosystems.
My other interest includes studying human-large mammal interactions, movement behavior within shared landscapes and finding pathways of coexistence.
I received my Ph.D. from the Wildlife Institute of India in 2015. My doctoral research was
focused on the movement ecology of tigers and human-tiger interactions in the Sundarban Delta. After completing my PhD I worked as a Research Associate on human-large mammal conflicts in the Indian Himalayan region. Major focus of this work was to understand why large mammals come into conflict with humans using socio-ecological systems and mapping risk zones where negative interactions were more likely to occur. I radio-collared common leopards to understand their movement behavior and response to anthropogenic impacts within multiple-used areas . I also developed a community driven human-carnivore coexistence model using non-lethal deterrents (fox lights) to reduce predation on livestock.
