After graduating with a veterinary medical degree from the University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, India, I went on to do a master’s specializing in Veterinary Microbiology at Karnataka Veterinary University, India. After working as a veterinary officer in the department of animal husbandry and veterinary services, Government of Karnataka for a transient period, I joined Institute of animal Health & Veterinary Biologicals (IAH&VB), Bangalore as a scientist, where I currently hold a faculty position. My expertise spans in the areas of investigating the diseases of livestock and poultry with a special focus on emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. Over the years, I have gained extensive expertise in poultry health and welfare aspects, because of my active association with commercial poultry farmers across India. I was responsible for establishing Biosafety level-3 (BSL-III/P3) high level containment virology facility for the diagnosis of highly pathogenic avian Influenza (HPAI) infections in the region. I am privileged to be a Government of India nominee for food and agriculture organisation (FAO) training programme on “Principles of veterinary Epidemiology” at Massey University, New Zealand during 2011. I was awarded “Senior Research Fellowship (SRF)-2012” from Indian Council Agricultural Research (ICAR)-New Delhi, bestowed as an ICAR-international fellow for the year 2013-14.

Research Interest

My research interests include looking at the molecular aspects of avian and mammalian influenza virus biology. Chickens when infected with certain influenza virus subtypes (highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) viruses) often cause 100% mortality within 24-48 hours, whilst infection of ducks either cause no or mild clinical signs and survive the infection yet acting as the focal source for spreading the dreaded virus to the susceptible hosts. My special emphasis is on dissecting the molecular reasons leading to this disparate outcome to influenza virus infection among chicken and ducks. My research also involves using all the OMICS tools for better molecular understanding of ‘flu’ virus in order to identify the ‘Novel signatures’ that can be used in diagnostics and therapeutics in the future.
