Research Interest

Bovine mastitis is a never ending and costly disease for dairy industry around the world.  Dairying is becoming an emerging sector in Bangladesh on the ground of huge demand of milk for consumption and employment opportunities for youths and poverty alleviation of marginal people and women empowerment. He is interested in infectious diseases in farm animals with especial focus on mastitis.
