Dr. Stotra Chakrabarti

I’m a behavioral ecologist and conservation biologist, interested in the “whys and hows” of interactions within and between species, as well as human-wildlife interactions. Observing wild animals has been a passion since I was a boy, and I have blended that passion into my profession.

My research systems generally include large mammals with long-term datasets. I use an array of methods, involving field observations, experimental manipulations, quantitative genetics, demography and life-history traits, comparative physiology, and socio-ecological parameterization to answer fundamental and applied questions.
