Area of Research Interests
Epidemiology of important parasitic diseases prevalent in Punjab like
gastrointestinal parasitism of dairy animals and vector borne
haematozoan infections. Molecular diagnosis of bovine haematozoan
infections like babesiosis, theileriosis, anaplasmosis and

babesiosis and ehrlichiosis. Serological diagnosis of bovine babesiosis
and toxoplasmosis. Detection of acaricide resistance status in cattle
tick against cypermethrin, deltamethrin, fenvalerate, amitraz, malathion
Development of biochemical assay
as diagnostic tool for synthetic pyrethroid resistance in cattle tick
Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum
Bioassay based detection of
ivermectin resistance status in cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus)
microplus from Punjab (D-2)
Towards climate resilient
