Dr Parul Srivastava, holds Ph.D. in Forest Ecology and Environment from Forest Research Institute (Deemed) University (2008) and a Master of Science (Botany) from University of Allahabad. To be proficient in geospatial technology, she undertook the training in ‘Application of GIS in Forestry’ from Indian Institute of Remote Sensing. She has over nine years of research experience in the area of Forest Ecology and Climate Change and has contributed significantly in various projects on mapping and monitoring of natural resources during her association with Forest Survey of India, Dehradun and Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. Advocating policy message supported by concrete science and technical analysis, she has research papers and reports published in peer reviewed journals and in the conferences both Nation and International level. She has also reviewed papers for International Journal of Remote Sensing (2011 and 2010).
