After completion of BSc. in Physiology Honours from Presidency college (1981) and Masters from Calcutta University with Microbiology and Immunology as special paper (1984), I started my research career from Indian Institute of Chemical Biology (CSIR),Jadavpur, Kolkata, as a research scholar (1985-1990) and awarded PhD degree (1991) and joined as Research Associate of DBT at department of Biotechnology, Jadavpur University, Kolkata.

During that period I was awarded Full bright Fellowship of Rockefellor Foundation,USA and joined at University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas, USA as a post-doctorate fellow (1991-1996). Coming back to India, I joined Bose Institute,Kolkata as a Pool-officer, CSIR and continued until I joined in WBES as lecturer (1999). I worked as a full time researcher for thirteen years (1985-1998) and presently involved in teaching for fifteen years at UG & PG level.

Research Area : At PhD level thrust area of research was protein chemistry and reproductive biology as Research Associate, I worked on Immunological aspect of reproduction, at post-doc period emphasis was given to molecular reproduction and Transgenic research.

Presently several M. Sc projects are supervised which are mainly based on the physiological aspects and medicinal values of various herbal products on different system of animal and human
