  • Fish disease diagnostics
  • Larval rearing
Brief profile:

After taking masters in Veterinary Microbiology in 1997 and PhD in Veterinary Microbiology in 2005 I am working in CIBA since April 2015 on fish breeding and larval rearing. I currently work in division of Fish Culture in CIBA. I have worked on fish immunology and have contributed to development of immunodiagnostics for fish and shellfish diseases. I have interests in mucosal immunity and application of probiotics for larval rearing.
