Community Ecology & Ecotoxicology
Master student



Since childhood, my love for nature has remained constant and this one of the reasons I opt to study my bachelor in environmental engineering. I finished my bachelor of engineering in India from 2013-2017. During my bachelor's, I joined one NGO and there I did volunteering work with reptiles, birds, and amphibians. This gave me goosebumps and I love doing it. So ultimately I decided to do my masters in a domain where I can stay connected with my interest. Therefore I applied for the master’s program in Ecotoxicology at the University of Koblenz-Landau and luckily got acceptance for the winter semester 2018. I am highly interested in the Terrestrial Ecotoxicology field. So currently, I am working on RPC which deals with a laboratory test to study morphometric changes in palmate newt larvae after a controlled diet. I am also starting my master thesis in the same project which includes semi-field mesocosms study with a laboratory feeding experiment.
