Major areas of research:

  • Insect Endocrinology.

Since North-East is very rich in insect fauna I am interested to work in my future research in the following areas:

  1. Insect Diversity ( Lepidoptera, Coleoptera and Hemiptera) with special reference to Meghalaya to begin with and then followed in other North-Eastern States.
  2. Insect Morphology and coloration (any Insect Orders or Order)of various colored insects. As because it is very important to study how an insect adapt to different ecological niches in the environment. Importance of coloration in insect is also a very interesting field.
  3. Insect Endocrinology -To study the effects of insect hormones on coloration and development of insect as well as its control (in case of pests) by usage of biopesticides.
