I have hands on experience on various instruments and methods includes Soil core samplers, Confocal Microscopy, PCR, Gel Electropheresis, Gel-doc and Fluorescence Microscopy.



Research Interest/Area

Microbial ecology, Antimicrobial resistance, Bioinformatics, Genomics, Microbial phylogeny and Next Generation Sequencing


Currently, I am working on the prevalence of genetic diversity of antimicrobial resistant bacteria in the environment coastal environment, mangroves etc. My research has focus on investigation of potential antibiotic resistant bugs from marine environment polluted by public wastes.
