Focus of Research:
  • Nutrigenomic research in mariculture species
  • Nutraceuticals and disease management in mariculture
  • Development of commercial feed for mariculture species

With Masters in Fish Nutrition and Biochemistry, I have joined as a scientist in Marine Biotechnology Division of CMFRI in 2014. Before joining into ARS, I worked with Growel Feeds Pvt Ltd., Andhra Pradesh as Assistant Manager- Fish Nutrition and Formulation since February 2012-July 2013 and gained rich experience in commercial aspects of feed manufacture. Later I moved into State Fisheries Department as Inspector of Fisheries for a brief period before joined into ARS. Currently I am working in food fish nutrition with nutrigenomic approach. I have great interest in disease management in mariculture through nutraceuticals and its effects on immune development.
