Welcome! I am a post-doctoral researcher and an entomologist specialized in insect physiology, insect nutrition, molecular ecology, neuroethology, impacts of xenobiotics and insect ecotoxicology. I employ various interdisciplinary research techniques such as molecular ecology, mass spectrometry and apicultural practices to address my current research questions in the honey bee model system.
I am also keen to explore the physiology and behavioral ecology of pests and other insect communities
. Read more about my research here.
Along with research, I have been teaching various courses in insect physiology, behavior, ecology and honey bee biology since 2010. I also regularly mentor graduate and undergraduate students.
I conduct research at Dr. Ramesh Sagili’s Honey Bee Lab at Oregon State University, USA. I obtained my Ph.D. from the Department of Zoology, University of Calcutta, India, under the joint supervision of Prof. Parthiba Basu (Ecology Research Unit) and Prof. Sagartirtha Sarkar (Molecular Cardiology).
I look forward to bringing positivity and helping diverse communities through my work. My outreach and extension work reflect my commitment towards our various stakeholders and the scientific community.
Thank you for visiting my website. Please feel free to contact me with questions, ideas, science, outreach and initiatives!
