Biography

I completed my senior secondary (Xth) from Boys’ town Public school, Nasik in 1990 with First class Distinction (79%) Maharastra State Board followed by Higher Secondary (12Th) at Colvin Taluquadr’s College, Lucknow with First class in UP Board in 1992. I have completed my graduation in1998 in forestry as gold medallist from pioneer Agriculture University, GBPUAT, Pantnagar followed by post graduation in 2000 from another important university, Tamilndau Agricultural University, Coimbatore through ICAR Junior research Fellowship and then NET in Forestry. I received doctoral degree from Pioneer institute of forestry in Asia FRI, Dehradun in 2004, which become a milestone in my forestry career. All these different schools of forestry enriched my forestry knowledge more deep and specific, which help in teaching specially the advanced courses of forestry. The journey of teaching in forestry start from Private colleges of forestry as Assistant professor when privatization of higher education just started namely, Doon PG College of agriculture and Dolphin PG Institute of Biomedical and Natural Sciences in Dehradun from mid 2003 under HNB Garhwal university, Srinagar Uttarakhand. I significantly contributed in both the new institutes where I engaged in teaching the forestry subjects. In 2005, I shifted to College of Horticulture & Forestry, Jhalawar under Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture & Technology, Udaipur. I tried excel myself besides undergraduate and post graduate teaching to handle research projects besides heading the Department of Forest Products & Utilisation till Feb, 2013. Presently I am working as Associate professor (Silviculture) & Head, Department of Silviculture and Agroforestry, in College of Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari Gujarat.
