Himani studied physics and obtained her PhD in statistical physics from TIFR Mumbai. She then switched to theoretical population and evolutionary genetics for her postdoctoral work at IST Austria.

Her research focuses on how polygenic selection (i.e., natural selection involving multiple genes) shapes adaptation within populations and genetic differentiation between populations.

Specific projects relate to understanding a) the effects of linkage between genes during polygenic adaptation b) the evolutionary interplay between genetic architecture and mating system c) the effects of polygenic adaptation on the eco-evolutionary dynamics of sub-divided and marginal populations.
