The diversity of lifeforms around us is truly breathtaking, and the evolutionary processes underlying this diversity are just as astounding. Our research group Vanasiri* based at IISER Thiruvananthapuram (Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Thiruvananthapuram) addresses a range of questions in evolutionary biology all of which seek to understand diversification both within and across species. We employ several study systems currently spanning plants, reptiles, butterflies and other insects.
More about current and past work in the Research page. If you are interested in joining the group as a student, postdoc or intern, check out Openings. For more information about Ecology and Evolution research at IISER-TVM, check out Ecology and Evolution @ IISER Thiruvananthapuram.

* Vanasiri in Kannada translates to 'wealth or splendour of forests', the inspiration that got Ullasa into research in ecology
