About the event

Join ecologist-in-residence Kiran for a nature walk of OmVed Gardens. During the tour, Kiran will share insight into OmVed Gardens' ecology, tips for spotting and identifying wildlife and recommendations for nurturing wildlife.

As the 22-23 resident, Kiran is mapping the ecology of the site and quantifying its biodiversity. Through his work, we hope to add understanding to the value of rewilding urban landscapes. As a highly curated site, observing what grows and what does not, helps us learn how to manage natural environments in urban spaces.

Kiran is a naturalist with a passion for understanding nature. He has previously volunteered at the Natural History Museum, London Zoo and London Wildlife Trust. Kiran is currently a PhD student with the Seychelles Warbler Project using genomics (entire DNA sequences of individuals) to understand the ecology and evolution of island-endemic Seychelles warblers, which had nearly gone extinct in the 1960s. Key influences are his mother, a keen gardener and grandmother, both botanist and biology teacher. He also aims to improve diversity and accessibility in science and in natural spaces. His research can be found on GitHub.
