My Research

I started my research career working on the “Assessment of water quality in major streams and rivers, groundwater recharges in Gir Protected Area and siltation rate in four reservoirs”. This project was sponsored by Wildlife Division, Department of Forests, Sasan Gir, Government of Gujarat under the supervision of Prof. A. V. Ramachandran, Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science, Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda (Vadodara).

As my Post graduation was in Zoology with specialization in Endocrinology and Immunology, I switched on to research which was closer to my field i.e., on Male Reproductive Physiology. I worked on “Intravasal contraception with styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) and its non-invasive reversal: A long term sequelae” which was sponsored by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, New Delhi under the supervision of Prof. N. K. Lohiya, Department of Zoology, University of Rajasthan (Jaipur).  I completed my Doctoral work on the same work.

Currently, I am working on a) Understanding the role of Gut microbiota and Immunology in diabetes; b) Understanding the role of liver inflammation and cancer following gut modulation during diabetes and c) understanding the role of catspers and TLRs in sperm function and ageing.
