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.
of biochemical assay as diagnostic tool for synthetic pyrethroid resistance
in cattle tick Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum
based detection of ivermectin resistance status in cattle tick Rhipicephalus
(Boophilus) microplus from Punjab (D-2)
climate resilient livestock production system in Punjab (NAFCC)
