Areas of interest

  • Won HEC research grant under NRPU programme .The two year project # 666 titled Epidemiology and economic losses of theileriosis in Bovine was successfully completed.
  • Conducted research on epidemiology, serodiagnosis and chemoprophylaxis of theileriosis in six different districts of Pakistan during P.hD. Used  herbal plant, Calotropis procera, for treatment of theileriosis with successful results. Calotropis procera is an alternative to Buparvaquone. Looking forward to develop patent herbal medicine for theileriosis from this herbal plant.
  • Have interest in tick borne diseases with special reference to public health. Did research on tick borne diseases in Minnesota in wild animals and provided useful results of  research  to the Department of Natural Resources, Minnesota for planning effective control measures for these diseases in moose population. Have interest to learn modern diagnostic tools and tests in  research and work on tick borne diseases from public health perspective in Pakistan. Also have interests in adoptive research in my field and in planning and running projects for dairy farmers and rural women trainings  of Pakistan.
