Research Interests

My broad area of interest is conservation of small populations and breeding of critically endangered species using modern biotechnological tools. My group is also involved in development of non-invasive methods to monitor reproductive functions, stress and fertility status of Indian endangered animals using fecal steroid metabolites.
