Welcome. I plan to blog about anything that I find interesting here. Right now I see stuff related to Biodiversity Informatics, Information Technology, R Statistical Computing, GIS and Mapping, Social Networking Websites and Biodiversity in general being posted here.
I am an IT professional by training and nature lover by heart. My interests are biodiversity documentation, databases, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and citizens science. Currently I am a graduate student at University of Kansas. After completing Masters in Computer Science from University of Pune, I worked with Foundation for Revitalization of Local Health Traditions (FRLHT). I have also been associated with organizations such as WWF India, BNHS, RANWA, GBIF, Encyclopedia of Life and MonarchWatch in different capacities. I was part of the core team to initiate DiversityIndia in 2001 and have been coordinator since then.
