Jyotsna has joined our team as a Program Coordinator- Community Well-being Program and looks forward to being part of an exciting, interdisciplinary team of practitioners and researchers at Keystone. Jyotsna received her MS and Ph.D. from the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management, University of Hawaii. Following this, she moved to Washington for a three-year post-doc at the Human Dimensions for Natural Resource Management Lab, School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, University of Washington. Her doctoral research focusing on the Western Ghats had made her aware of the dynamic, complex relationship that exists between the natural environment and human society and its implications on sustainability. The opportunity to continue this engagement in understanding these complex human-environment interactions and outcomes brings her to Keystone. She is originally from Kerala but is very excited about calling Nilgiris her new home.
