Harini Nagendra is currently a Professor of Sustainability at School of Development, Azim Premji University. Her research straddles examining human-environment interactions largely in urban landscapes but also in forests. She intends to focus her work increasingly towards the study of “urban commons”—common pools of resources that fall between public and private utilities, and are shared by the communities living around the resource. Her forthcoming book on Bangalore, Nature in the City: Bangalore in the Past, Present and Future is eagerly awaited.
