Academic Credentials

Teaching and Other Appointments

I have spent 17 years as a Gynaecologist/Obstetrician. At both undergraduate and graduate levels, my current teaching interest includes gynaecology and obstetrics courses especially neuroendocrinology of reproductive axis in ruminants. To expose students to interactive education and training, we have prepared a Video DVD entitled ‘Practical aspects of Theriogenology in bovines’ (216 min). The aspects covered in the DVD include anatomy of female genitalia, transrectal palpation of genitalia, pregnancy diagnosis, fetal malpresentataions / correction, fetotomy, Sharma’s method of uterine detorsion, epidural anesthesia, Buehner’s suture, semen collection/freezing and artificial insemination. My vision is to develop in students a professional competence in evaluating and treating various reproductive problems and to enhance the student’s understanding of role of reproduction in sustainable dairy farming.

Area of Research Interests

My goal is to promote high quality research in bovine reproduction with potential on-field application and providing direct benefit to marginal dairy farmers. My main research interests include: a) Increasing survival rate of dystocia affected bovines, b) Development of an economical and efficient fixed-time AI protocol for buffaloes reared in tropical areas, c) Understanding physiological and genomic regulation of summer stress-induced infertility in buffaloes and its alleviation through genetic selection and endocrine interventions especially melatonin implants, d) Neuroendocrinology of stress and reproduction in ruminants, e) Uterine immunomodulation of endometritic cattle, f) Improving fertility through application of approved artificial insemination techniques, g) Increasing productive longevity of crossbred cattle by ameliorating repeat breeding syndrome, h) Impact of pesticide residues on bovine fertility, i) Use of nanotechnology aids for improving estrus detection efficiency of buffaloes, and j) Development of radioimmunoassay (RIA) procedures for various reproductive hormones for diagnosing the aetiology of bovine infertility.
