My laboratory is working in the area of environmental microbiology to explore the useful microbes from extreme habitats such as halophiles associated with corals from Andaman Sea and thermophiles from hot springs. In this regard, my Laboratory is working in the area of Geomicrobiology, Microbial chemistry, environmental microbiology and ecology to explore the useful microbes for novel genes, bio-molecules and metabolic pathways. Besides, my research is involved in the development of leading edge technologies for metagenomic gene discovery, molecular phylogenetic approach to investigate microbial gene diversity and community structure and function in various environments.
