Ratna Karatgi

I am interested in evolutionary biology and ecology, and have recently completed a Masters program in evolutionary biology. Within the field of evolutionary biology, I find the study of mating systems and sexual selection, and the study of animal societies and social interactions very fascinating. I enjoy trekking and being out in the wild. I love reading and I am currently reading a lot of historical fiction.
