Taniya Gill is a doctoral candidate from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Delhi. She began her journey into understanding animal personalities with the rhesus macaques of Shimla during her M.Phil, which has now led her to study the individual unique behaviours and mannerisms of this species in the forest fringes of Delhi.

She is also a talented guitarist, and is responsible for both today's stories and music!
