I am a professor of Entomology in the Dept. of Entomology, College of Agriculture, University of Agricultural Sciences, Raichur, Karnataka, INDIA. My research interests are insect ecology with special reference to migration and reproductive biology. I am looking at the factors which influence the long distance migration in noctuid moths, especially pests of agriculture.My other area of research is development of ICT tools to enhance the extension services in crop health management. Me and my team has been involved in developing a novel ICT application called e-SAP (Electronic Solutions against Agricultural Pests) which empowers the extension personnel to diagnose and quantify the problems related to insects, diseases, weeds and nutritional disorders in crops and provide solutions on real time.In the past, I have also been associated with the filed of biological control especially with entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs), climate change studies and integrated pest management.
