Education:
I did my master in Ecology and Environment science.
Ecology is the scientific analysis and study of interactions among organisms and their environment. Ecology as a science plays an important role in our understanding of various ecosystems. It is an interdisciplinary field that includes both biology and earth science, but is a separate area of study from environmentalism, natural history, and environmental science.

Environmental science focuses on the interactions between the physical, chemical, and biological components of the environment, including their effects on all types of organisms. To many people, environmental science specifically refers to the impact of humans on the environment.
Some of the key issues studied under this subjects are
1. Life processes, interactions and adaptations of a specific species
2. The influence of environment factors on populations of organisms
3. Progression of changes in ecosystems
4. The abundance and distribution of organisms in an environment
5. Biodiversity within an ecosystem
6. How urban areas drive environmental change
7. Material demands of production and human
consumption on biodiversity
8. The impact of local environmental changes at the global level
9. Changes in environment over long periods
10. Effects of human populations on specific ecosystems
11. Impact of climate change on livelihood & food security
12. Sustainability studies
