Ajay Immanuel Gonji

Junior Research Assistant, CUES

Ajay has been associated with the Centre for Urban Ecology and Sustainability since 2015. He is also a PhD Scholar at the School of Human Ecology, Ambedkar University Delhi. His research focuses on understanding the ecology and behaviour of mesopredators such as the Golden Jackal (Canis aureus) in the parks and forests of the Delhi Ridge. Although primarily ecological in nature, Ajay’s research uses ecology as a tool to try and unravel the various entanglements the mesopredator finds itself in vis-à-vis other non-human and human creatures in the urban woodlands of Delhi.
