About Dr. Pijush Kanti Jhan

Dr. Jhan completed his MS in insect taxonomy and Ph.D. in insect physiology. During the MS study, he discovered five new insect species and recorded 18 genera from Bangladesh. He studied vector insect whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) with Begomovirus transmission and relationship in his Ph.D. and learned knowledge about insect molecular taxonomy also. Now he has been continuing his research in insect molecular taxonomy and virus transmission ability confirmation of the indigenous whiteflies of Bangladesh.
