New Delhi: This week we bring you the second part of our special series on the Academic Expat. Today, we talk to Henry Pedersen, a Columbia University graduate who is studying camel genetics in Bikaner, Rajasthan. He spends his days with 270 camels (and their researchers) at the National Research Centre on Camel.
In this show, he talks about living in Bikaner and working
with Indian research institutions, and describes what’s happening to both the camels in northwest India and the societies that live off them.
This episode is part of a series of interviews about the experiences, projects, and inspirations of individuals who are in India on the Fulbright scholarship.
We discovered that in a lot of cases, they interact closely with Indians outside the major metros, and get to know the country in a very different light than the professional urban expat.
