My research interest are in the Integrated Vector Management and Control (Biological Control). The research area covers protection from mosquito vectors using deltamethrin impregnated curtains, epidemiology, surveillance, biology, bio-pesticides, mechanism of mode of action, histopathological studies, vector management, development of resistance, resistance management, molecular mechanism of microbial resistance, organo-phosphate resistance, toxicity, bioassays, biochemical-analysis, enzymology, microbial fermentation process, cost-effective technology, solid waste management, biochemical and molecular biological studies on the purification and characterization of mosquitocidal toxins, identification of novel bacteria from environmental sources for mosquito vector control etc. The other area of his interest is on Japanese encephalitis, filariasis, malaria, hemoglobinopathies, scrub typhus and nanoparticles.
