I have a wildlife biology degree from the Wildlife Institute of India, Dehradun and carried out my PhD research on gibbons in Assam as part of the Wildlife Research Group, University of Cambridge. I work primarily in North-east India. In 2007-2009 I conducted a camera-trap survey in the Jeypore-Dehing lowland evergreen forests of Assam during which we recorded seven species of cats. In 2012-2015, I studied mammal occurrence in a forest and swidden agriculture matrix  in the Balpakram area of Meghalaya state, India, documenting 51 species of mammals, among which were 5 species of cats.
