     Curriculum Vitae

Razib DasRazib Das

(PhD Student- HNFAS)

I completed the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and MSc in Microbiology from Sylhet Agricultural University Bangladesh in 2009 and in 2012, respectively. After completing my MSc degree, I joined the Government of Bangladesh as a Field Veterinarian. My interest in livestock and poultry farming increased my interest in nutrition field. I found Dr. Rajesh Jha doing significant researches in the field of animal nutrition. The ongoing researches in Dr. Jha’s Lab encouraged me to apply to the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I got admission and have become a part of this resourceful Lab and this beautiful campus. My PhD research is focused on evaluation of feed additives for their effects on performance and gut health of poultry.  

Pravin Mishra

(MS Student- HNFAS)

I completed my DVM degree from Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU). During my DVM study, I worked as a research assistant in the Faculty of Veterinary Science, BAU, where I got interested in research. In the meantime, I did an internship with Dr. Woo Kyun Kim (University of Georgia), where I worked on poultry nutrition which piqued my interest further in this field.

I believe that hard work and proper guidance will help me achieve my objectives and found Dr. Jha’s lab to quench my thirst for knowledge and do impactful research. I am working on my MS in Animal Sciences degree with a research focus on evaluating feed additives for their effects on growth performance and gut health of poultry.
