Research interests

My areas of interests extends from Biochemistry, Molecular cell biology, protein biochemistry and functional attributes of bioactive compounds from natural resources in different aspects of health issues to ameliorate and/or prevent major health hazards including neurodegenerative disorders, cancer etc.

 I am currently working in Kerala university of Fisheries and Ocean Studies, Kerala, engaged in fish health disease management for sustainable aquaculture. I am interested in studies related to development of nano and glycosylated vaccines for the treatment of emerging fish health diseases.
