Area of specialization:
 


Reproductive Endocrinology: due to the modern life style and disturbed feeding habits, the reproductive status of humans is challenged and it causes serious reproductive disorders viz. infertility; Model: Mice or Rat.
Toxicology: Specially reproductive toxicology; Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) and their effect on reproductive physiology and endocrine status in catfish; Model: Heteropneustes fossilis.
