Research Experience

1. A Socio-Economic Appraisal of Yak Rearing in Arunachal Pradesh (Principal Investigator) (Main emphasis of this project to assess the present socio-economic scenario of the yak rearer of Arunachal Pradesh by developing a exclusively socio-economic scale for highlander.) 2. Network project on amelioration of temperate/alpine pastures for livelihood support to pastoral communities (Co-Principal Investigator) (Aim of this project is to recharge and rejuvenate the degraded temperate/alpine pasture by GIS based mapping of temperate/alpine pastures, exploring the suitability of the new species and varieties of pasture grasses, legumes and herbs and capacity building of the pastoral community to produce fodder round the year for their animal) 3. Role Performance and Job Satisfaction among Pranibandhus of Purba Medinipur District of West Bengal (M.Sc. Research Project) (Mainly focusing on current trend of dairying among the progressive masses in the state of West Bengal along with the modern and improved breeding and healthcare practices followed on the dairy livestock by private A.I. workers.)

Major Research Accomplishment

Socio-economic status of the Monpa pastoral nomad has been assessed Economic analysis of yak based livestock production system under transhumance system has been worked out Yak tracts of Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim has been traced Suitability of 3 grassess (Dactylis, Lolium, Seteria) and one legume (white clover) has been assessed through community participation Training needs on different aspects of yak rearing has been explored Performance and job staisfaction of field level stakeholders of PublicPrivate-Partnership model of Artificial Insemination in West Bengal has been assessed
