Brief writeup on area of specialization/awards/achievements:
 

Insect Physiology: Haemolymph analysis of red cotton bug and a few aquatic bugs; Studies on development and growth including reproduction of D. koenigii. Recently we are engaged in understanding the mechanism of insecticide resistance in melon fruit fly, B. cucurbitae and the biocontrol of hazardous insect pest, D. koenigii by the entomopathogenic fungi.
