Focus of Research:
  • Demersal Fisheries, Population Dynamics, Stock Assessment and Fisheries Resource Management
  • Impact of climate change on marine fisheries
  • Mariculture 

I have done my masters in fisheries resource management in 2010 during which I have worked on image analysis based stock identification protocols.  Since 2012, I am working in CMFRI on Demersal fisheries related studies. I am working to understand fish biology and it population dynamics as well as resolving the management strategy for the sustainable exploitation of this resource. I am also involved in assessing the climate change impact on marine fisheries and its mitigation aspects.  Presently, I am pursuing my Ph.D. on shark population biology study.
