The research projects she has undertaken in the past and is currently pursuing can be divided under two categories- animal behavior and archaeology.  For more information on ongoing projects, please visit Research.

Research and academic activities aside, Prapti is also one of the youngest-published authors in India, published at age 14 by Times Group Books in an anthology of short stories. Her creative writing skills have been honed under the mentoring of eminent authors such as Ruskin Bond and Sudha Murthy. She also conducts interviews with both newbie and award-winning novelists, transcripts of which can be read at her older blog here.

She is also a very active member of non-profit forums such as PETA, WWF, Project Noah and UNESCO’s Voices of Youth.

When not engrossed in reading a good book, you can find her collecting rocks or wandering about with the numerous animals and birds she has rescued and adopted over the years.

Currently, Prapti is pursuing a B.A. (Research) degree in History at Shiv Nadar University, Delhi, India.
