Brief profile:

After taking masters in Fish & Fishery Science (Mariculture) in 1997, PhD in Fish & Fishery Science in 2002 and post-doctoral experience in Taiwan (2004 to 2009), I have been working in CIBA since September 20009 on molecular endocrinology of penaeid shrimps and finfish. I have worked on the molecular reproductive endocrinology of finfish and crustacean. My research involves the development of induce maturation protocols alternative to eyestalk ablation in penaeid shrimps and understanding the neuroendocrine pathways regulating reproduction and its application to fish culture.

Research areas:

  • Molecular Endocrinology regulating the reproduction of crustacean and finfish.
  • Development of strategies to induce maturation of captive stocks.

Current Research Projects:
