Brief profile:

After taking masters in Fisheries Science area specialized in Fish processing Technology, 1993 [year] and PhD in Fisheries Microbiology in 2002 (On deputation) I am working in CIBA since 1996 [year] on. I currently work in division of CCD in CIBA. I have worked on the Development of bio-therapeutic agents from marine resources and enhancement of livelihood of coastal fisher folk through aquaculture technologies, I have contributed to . I have interests in Seed production and grow-out practices of native Indian Brackishwater shrimps.

Research areas:

  • Shrimp culture
  • Aquatic microbiology
  • Development of marine therapeutic agents

Current Research Projects:


Funded By
1 Development of inhibitors for controlling quorum sensing marine V.harveyiduring shrimp larviculture DBT
2 Upgradation of breeding and culture technology of Indian White Shrimp Fenneropenaeus Indicus through stock evaluation and culture demonstrations Institute
Recognitions (National & International)
