Brief profile:

After taking masters in Aquatic Environmental Management (AEM) from Central Institute of Fisheries Education (CIFE) [2011] I am working in CIBA since April, 2014 on live feed research. I currently work in division of Nutrition Genetics and Biotechnology in CIBA. I have worked on microalgae culture, nutrient profiling and crustacean larval nutrition. I have interests in finfish and shellfish larval nutrition, isolation and characterization of novel microalgae strains; utilization of fish waste as plankton booster.

Research areas:

  • Livefeed culture and its applications in finfish and shellfish larval rearing
  • Isolation, characterization and nutritional profiling of microalgae from different ecosystems
  • Development of plankton booster from fish waste

 

Current Research Projects:

No
