Sumit Mandal

Assistant Professor

I am a marine biologist and have a broad interest in marine ecology but primarily interested in the interaction between ecosystem processes and the community structure of marine benthic animals. Presently my laboratory is working on benthic-pelagic linking approach to delineate the near-shore benthic population. The relative importance of pre- versus post-settlement events in soft-bottom communities, integrating both pelagic and benthic phases of animal life cycles has been the highlight of our research work. We are also interested in biology and ecology of marine invertebrates, and the impact of global climate change on the marine biotic community.
