Senior Researcher, Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Izatnagar, Bareilly (U.P.), India
I am working as a Senior Researcher in Entomology Laboratory, Division of Parasitology, ICAR-Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Izatnagar, Bareilly (U.P.), India. I have exclusively worked on acaricide resistance in ticks and development of herbal acaricides for the management of resistant tick infestations in animals for the last 12 years. I have developed acaricide resistance data of a number of tick populations collected from different states of India. I have also screened many plant extracts and identified two plants having acaricidal activity. Two herbal technologies were developed and validated in field condition. One antitick herbal technology is commercialized. More than 35 international and 02 patents have been published.
