Brief profile:

I have completed MVSc and PhD in Veterinary Microbiology from ICAR-Indian Veterinary Research Institute. I joined ARS service in 2008 and since then working in ICAR-Central Institute of Brackishwater Aquaculture in Aquatic Animal Health & Environment Division. I have worked on virulence mechanism of bacterial pathogens, phage therapy, vaccines, pond microbiology, biofloc and periphyton system and disease epidemiology. I have more than 30 publications in peer reviewed journals. I have interests in therapeutics & prophylactics, microbial ecology, microbial bioprospecting and understanding the virulence of bacterial pathogens.

Research areas:

  • Virulence of bacterial pathogens
  • Therapeutics
  • Vaccine and Immunoprophylactics

Current Research Projects:


Funded By
1 Invertebrate and finfish diseases in brackishwater aquaculture and development of prophylactic and therapeutic strategies ICAR
2 Development of diagnostics and vaccines for sustainable aquaculture ICAR
3 National Surveillance Programme for Aquatic Animal Diseases ICAR
Recognitions (National & International)
