    Scientist Mentor: I will mentor teams of students online

  • Research Interests (300 words)
    My intrigue in science began at an early age as I have had a sense of wonder in exploring the world and asking questions to know more. My Ph.D. thesis research was focused on Phytoremediation of heavy metals using novel biotechnological tools. There was an interesting question that how plants respond at gene expression level to changing environment. To find out the answers, I keep on studying plant-metal interaction and characterized genes and their novel function in response to heavy metal. My research is always exploring the new avenues of science with particular reference to plant-nutrient interaction and contributing to our understanding of how plant gene expression is regulated under the constantly changing nutrient conditions. My research interest includes Plant Molecular Biology, Plant Biotechnology, Phytoremediation, Heavy Metal Toxicity and Plant Genomics.
