Brief profile:

After taking masters in Aquatic Animal Health in 2012 and PhD in Aquatic Animal Health, in I am working in CIBA since 2016 on feed additives in improving the health and growth of fish and shrimp. I currently work in the division of Nutrition, Genetics and Biotechnology in CIBA. I have worked on impact of traditional shrimp farming on the microbial population and Motile Aeromonas septicaemia (MAS) in cultured carps of West Bengal. I have contributed to Better Management Practices (BMP) for carp culture. I have interests in immuno-nutrition, feed additives and probiotics in improving the health of fish and shrimp.
