My Research Interests

Population genomics and phylogeny of fish is the field of my research fascination. Hilsa shad (Tenulosa ilisha) is the national fish of Bangladesh and is not only a tasty fish species but also linked with life and culture of my country. The anadromous fish show diverse adaptations in their life cycle like summer & winter migration, differences in routes of migration etc. Currently we want to understand the population genomics of Hilsa Shad collected from different locations, migratory cohorts and morphotypes in Bangladesh as my PhD research work. Previously I did some research in the field of fish osteology, biochemistry, diversity and aquaculture practices.
