Biography:

I’ve joined in Dr Sinu’s lab for Ph.D in 2013. My topic of interest are behavioural ecology of insects and species interactions. Currently I’m working on behavioural manipulation in host-parasite interactions. My main questions concern about the behavioural, biochemical and immunological changes  induced by the parasite in its host during different stages of prasitisation.
