Graduated in ‘Fisheries Sciences, (BFSc.) from Kerala Agricultural University during 2004-2009. Completed Masters in Fish Pathology and microbiology (MFSc) from Central Institute of Fisheries Education (CIFE), Mumbai during August 2009-2011. MFSc was done under the mentorship of Dr K V Rajendran, with research focus on disease diagnosis of WSSV (White Spot Syndrome Virus) in shrimp (Penaeus monodon). Later, PhD was registered under the same mentorship during 2011 on the topic “Identification and characterization of some immune genes in Mud crab Scylla serrata”. PhD was temporarily discontinued as I was selected as ICAR-ARS scientist in 2014. I joined CMFRI on April 2014, in Marine Biotechnology Division, Kochi.
