Kaberi Kar Gupta is an interdisciplinary scientist and educator with a wide range of training and research experience in citizen science, community-based conservation, behavioral and habitat ecology, conservation biology, ecological leadership, political ecology and teaching in both the USA and India. Her main interests are in research and communicating science to bridge the gap between scientists, policy makers and community members. Gupta is an ecologist trained in wildlife biology from the Wildlife Institute of India and in anthropology from Arizona State University. She studied the slender loris (Loris tardigradus, a nocturnal primate distributed in southern India and Sri Lanka) in the wilder forests of the Kalakad-Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve for about a decade for her Ph.D. thesis research.
