  • Role
    Scientist Mentor: I will mentor teams of students online

  • Research Interests (300 words)
    During my Masters program, i did research entitled Effect of Lead nitrate (a heavy metal) and Kinetin (a hormone) on external and internal morphology of Brassica campestris.
    My Ph.D. research was focused on Plant Transformation Studies. It involves Plant Tissue Culture (PTC) as a prerequisite technique. PTC is a technique used to produce new plants from any part (root, stem, shoot, leaves) of a parent plant. This technique is used to study/improve
    i: the growth and development of plants
    ii: the effect of environmental changes on the plants morphology and physiology
    iii: plants and microbes interactions
    iv: the traits of plants
    As a teacher, i used to teach the following courses to under-graduate/master�s students
    1: Plant Anatomy
    2: Cell and Molecular Biology
    3: Microbial and Molecular Genetics
