RESEARCH INTERESTS

 I’m an Environmental Biologist, the main goals of which are interpreting plankton biodiversity of fresh water ecosystem and detecting the events that produced in pollution biology. My research interests include species diversity of aquatic animals in fresh water deterioration / discovery of the eutrophication of wetlands in Coimbatore and the plant animal interactions from 2003 onwards, traditional way of purification of potable water by phytoremediation. Much of this work focuses on water purification of wetlands. I have developed a water bottle which is handy and portable which has the changeable filtration technology. As I have the interest in designing, created and generated more than thousand Bio-designs using the butterfly wing patterns and fish scale patterns which are patented, commercialized and application oriented.
