Brief profile:

After completion of master degree in Central Institute of Fisheries Education in 2010, I am working in Central institute of Brackish water Aquaculture, Chennai since 2014.I currently work in Aquatic Animal Health & Environment division in CIBA. Presently I am working on investigation of uncertain mortalities in shrimp hatcheries Penaeus (Litopenaeus) vannamei due to zoea-2 syndrome and in shrimp grow out system such as Running mortality syndrome (RMS), White feces syndrome (WFS) and Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei (EHP). My present research interest is on, shrimp larval pathology, disease epidemiology and disease diagnostics.
