Hello, I’m Akshay Surendra, a community ecologist from Bangalore/Bengaluru, India.
I’m presently studying the various ways by which soil microbes maintain a high diversity of trees in a tropical forest. I work in mixed dipterocarp forests of Sinharaja, Sri Lanka.
My dissertation research has no direct benefit for humankind. However, I do like to spend my spare time helping people who do things that benefit nature and/or people.
