  • Isolation, characterization and nutritional profiling of microalgae from different ecosystems
  • Mudcrab larval nutrition
Brief profile:

After taking masters in Aquatic Environmental Management (AEM) from Central Institute of Fisheries Education (CIFE) [2011] I am working in CIBA since April, 2014 on live feed research. I currently work in division of Nutrition Genetics and Biotechnology in CIBA. I have worked on microalgal culture, nutrient profiling and mudcrab larval nutrition. I have interests in finfish and shellfish larval nutrition, microalgal isolation and microalgal nutrient profiling.
