Designation(s): Assistant Professor
Climate change and different types of biotic and abiotic stresses are major global concerns that directly affect the crops growth and production. To meet the challenges of food security, it is very imperious to find out the causes and mechanisms of stress-affected plants on cell and molecular level and develop the strategies to overcome adverse effects of stresses on crops to achieve maximum productivity. My current interests are related to finding different strategies to overcome or minimize stress adversarial effects and enhance their tolerance by screening methods, genetic engineering, and short gun approaches.
