View My Curriculum Vitae


B.S. Entomology, University College of Agriculture, Multan, Pakistan, 1995
M.S. Entomology, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Pakistan, 1997
Ph.D. Entomology, Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas, USA, 2004


My reaserach focuses on the role of insects (cockroaches and muscoid flies) in the ecology of animal and human pathogens and antibiotic resistance genes as well as development and implementation of novel IPM strategies.
