My thrust area of research is on taxonomy, identification and conservation of macro fungi in moist deciduous forests of Kerala with special emphasis on Polypores.  I also have interest in forest legislations in the country and its ecological, legal and social dimensions in forest management.  I would like to extent my research area and specialization to natural resource management both inside and outside forest to achieve meaningful results and extent scientific inputs for decision makers for their long-term conservation and management of ecosystem at landscape level. My Knowledge and experience in forestry research and education enable me to provide extension activities like creation of awareness among various stakeholders and society to encourage in community-based conservation.
