Wildlife Biology, Public Health, Maternal and Child Health

Priyanjana Pramanik is a writer based in Kolkata, India, with an academic background in Wildlife Biology and economics. She has experience in teaching, science writing, and mangrove ecology. Priyanjana holds Masters in Wildlife Biology and Conservation (National Centre of Biological Sciences, 2022) and Economics (Tufts University, 2018). In between master's degrees, she was a researcher in the field of public health policy, focusing on improving maternal and child health outcomes in South Asia. She is passionate about science communication and enabling biodiversity to thrive alongside people. The fieldwork for her second master's was in the mangrove forests of Eastern India, where she studied the complex relationships between humans, mangrove fauna, and seedling growth.

Since she completed her Masters, Priyanjana has been busy conducting summer programmes on ecology for high school students, collecting oral histories on environmental change, coordinating field trips to the rainforests of southern India, and teaching statistics to budding lawyers. Throughout all this, her goal was to make science and natural history as accessible as possible.

Outside of work, her library is ever-growing, and currently spans four bookcases in three cities and two countries. She enjoys hiking, swimming, baking, singing, and trying to improve her nature journaling skills. Living for the outdoors, she always has her eyes set on her next travel destination. She attempts to befriend cats wherever she goes (and has the scratches to show for it!) and one day hopes to set up a sanctuary and adoption center to help rescued dogs and cats find their fur-ever homes.
