My research topics include forestry; renewable energy; rural development; climate change; solid waste management; ecotourism; transgenic cotton; agri-biotechnology; gender and population and many other related fields.

I am the President of the Forum of Environmental Journalists in India (FEJI), through which auspices I have organized and conducted several media-training events, conducted media study tours in collaboration with the International Federation of Environmental Journalists (IFEJ).

 I have written a media handbook on water and contributed chapters on water and sanitation and mountain ecosystems for two media handbooks.  I am the editor, along with Frederick Noronha as co-editor of The Green Pen: Environmental Journalism in India and the South Asian Region, published by Sage, New Delhi, 2010.
