I am employed as a postdoctoral fellow in the project ‘bioACTive’ in the Fish Health Department.
My research experience lies in the area of ‘green fish feed’ and its impact on fish health and consumer safety. In the current project, I work with bioactive compounds in selected Norwegian herbs and its suitability as a feed additive.
I obtained my PhD from Norwegian Veterinary Institute (Toxinology Research Group) in 2020. Assessment of antinutritional factors, bioactive peptides and contaminants (Mycotoxins) in plant-based feed and its biotransformation and carryover into edible portion of fish was my main area of study.
I have a Bachelor’s in Fisheries Science (KUFOS, Kerala) and Master’s in Fish genetics and Breeding (ICAR-CIFE, Mumbai) from India.
