Teaching and Other Appointments

Actively involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the field of Veterinary Parasitology with interest/ specialization in Veterinary Entomology and Acarology.

Area of Research Interests

Detection of resistance status against commonly used acaricides (cypermethrin, deltamethrin, fenvalerate, amitraz, malathion and ivermectin) in cattle tick. Screening of various indigenous medicinal plants for evaluation of their acaricidal properties which could be utilized for the control of ticks. Epidemiology of economically important parasitic diseases viz. gastrointestinal parasitism of dairy animals, ixodid ticks, haematozoan infections. Immunological and molecular diagnosis of parasitic diseases.
