Anindya Sinha, Professor at the National Institute of Advanced Studies and Adjunct Faculty at the Centre for Neuroscience, Indian Institute of Science, has primary research interests in animal behavioural ecology, cognitive ethology, evolutionary biology, population and behavioural genetics and urban animal studies, particularly of primates and other mammals. His earlier research concerned the behavioural biology of wasps, social cognition in macaques, classical genetics of human disease, and human-nonhuman species relationships, although his doctorate was in molecular biology at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, were he studied the biochemical genetics and molecular biology of carbohydrate metabolism in baker's yeast. Sinha is also deeply interested in the philosophy of Biology, particularly of genetics, evolution and conservation; our scientific and cultural heritage; performance studies, especially theatre and music, and the popularization of interdisciplinary approaches to Biology in the country. He has thus lectured extensively in a variety of educational and research institutions, both within and outside India.
