Brief profile:

After taking masters and PhD in Dairy Engineering from National Dairy Research Institute in the year 2010-2012 and 2012-2015, respectively, I joined CIBA since 2016. I am currently working in Social Science Division in CIBA. I have worked on establishing a lab scale model for treating the hatchery discharge water using Integrated multi-trophic Aquaculture (IMTA). I have contributed to design water and aeration budget for a large scale finfish hatchery and to design paddlewheel for mixing in raceway ponds for microalgal biomass production. I have interests in bioinformatics recirculation aquaculture system, IMTA, cage designing, image analysis and Mathematical, Kinetic, Artificial Neural Network and Statistical modelling.
