Divya is an Environmental Scientist and a science popularizer. Her research focuses on agricultural sustainability and she explores different dimensions of plant-soil-climate change feedbacks. She is particularly interested in analyzing adaptation options for agriculture to climate change and how agriculture can contribute mitigating global warming. She has made significant contribution to the field of ‘Carbon Footpriniting’ especially its application to agricultural systems. She believes that public awareness and engagement is one of the strongest drivers to promote sustainable choices and provoke environmental friendly decisions. Therefore, she argues that scientific analyses and controlled application of the concept of ‘Carbon Footprinting’ can make this ‘buzzword’ a strong tool for increasing the greenhouse gas efficiencies of our lifestyles thus reducing humanity’s footprint. She writes popular articles and actively works for science popularization. According to her, human curiosity has brought and will continue to bring major changes to the universe and this basic human attribute must be harnessed for conservation of nature.
