Brief profile:

After taking masters in Veterinary Microbiology in 2005, I am working in CIBA since 2010. I currently work in division of Aquatic Animal Health and Environment Division in CIBA. I am working on Bioremediation in aquaculture environment, Water and soil probiotics, Environment microbiology and Invertebrate Cell culture.

Research areas:

  • Bioremediation in aquaculture environment
  • Water and soil probiotics
  • Environment microbiology
  • Invertebrate Cell culture

Current Research Projects:


Funded By
1 Development of water and soil health card for environmental management of brackish water aquaculture system Institute
2 National innovations on climate resilient agriculture ICAR
3 Invertebrate and finfish diseases in brackishwater aquaculture and development of prophylactic and therapeutic strategies Institute
