Area of Research Interests

Conducting research in the field of reproductive biology of buffalo. Experiments involving Histological, histochemical, immunohistochemical, histoenzymic and Ultrastructural studies on female genitalia of buffalo are being conducted to characterise the female genitalia of buffalo during different phases of cycle and during prenatal life. Immunohistochemical studies on ER and PR in female genitalia of buffalo. Immunohistochemical studies on follicular atresia in buffaloes. Spermatogonial stem cell dynamics in buffaloes. Nuclear maturation and lipid dynamics in oocytes during in-vitro maturation in buffaloes.
