Senior Researcher, Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Izatnagar, Bareilly (U.P.), India
I am working as a Senior Researcher in Division of Parasitology, Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Izatnagar, Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, India. My PhD work was also focused on cattle ticks and I have completed Post Doctoral research from IVRI, Izatnagar, Bareilly. I am exclusively working on chemical acaricide resistance in cattle ticks and their mechanism. The last 12-13 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. I have developed one natural formulation for the control of tick infestation and validated on resistant tick in field condition. I have published 02 patents and more than 45 international research papers in reputed journal. I have completed more than 03 projects as a Principal Investigator.
