Research Interests

Molecular phylogeny and evolution

Interested in addressing evolutionary questions, including; evolutionary trajectories, estimation of divergence time, genetic basis of adaptive traits, evolutionary transitions and niche separation, and biogeography using a combination of morphological and genomic data with the help of freshwater organisms.

Ecology and ecotoxicology

Chemoecology, Chemoecology, oxidative stress physiology, behavioral ecology and evolutionary ecology of the aquatic organisms to comprehend prey predator interaction and investigation of toxic effects and behavioral consequences of pollutants on the organisms within aquatic ecosystem. 

Biological invasion and conservation

Risk assessment related to invasive species using different tools and series of ethological experiments. Implications of conservation genetics and conservation ecology for species based management of threatened taxa.
