Bio

Joyanta Bir is working as a faculty of Fisheries and Marine Resource Technology Discipline, Khulna University, Bangladesh since 2012. I did my Bachelor of Science in Fisheries (Honours) with GPA 3.91 in a scale of 4 securing the first position and awarded with university gold medal. I did my first MSc in Fish Genetics and Biotechnology from Khulna University. Second Master on Marine Environment and Resources (MER) from University of Basque Country, Spain Europe by awarding Erasmus Mundus Scholarship.

 

Recently I am conducting two research projects as PI and Co-Investigator. My research mainly focus on Fish Biology, Histopathology, Ecology and Aquaculture. And recently I am conducing some research on aquatic pollution mainly plastic pollution and toxicology.
