Nimish Vyas, Ph.D.

Nimish is a Research Biologist at the Eastern Ecological Science Center in Laurel, MD.

Nimish is a research biologist driven by my interest in avian conservation.  My research focuses primarily on identifying and addressing threats to birds and their environments that arise from human ignorance and arrogance.  My current work falls under ecotoxicology and invasive species research categories but my interests also encompass a myriad of other anthropogenic hazards to birds (for example, energy development, light pollution, avian trafficking and poaching, and illegal killings).  Much of my research produces publications with real-world applicability.  These publications have the unique property of direct implementation for avian conservation in the field.  Therefore, the publications have been used by natural resource managers, policy regulators, wildlife law enforcement agents, and U.S. Attorneys.
