Research Interests (300 words)
I am broadly interested in the soil chemistry and plant research, and have worked mostly in agricultural crops such as rice and wheat. My past research work focuses on interactions between soil, plants, water and the atmosphere to understand the nutrient cycling in different cropland systems. So far I have done both field and green house experiments on soil fertility and plant nutrition. My recent research work with undergraduate students of Harold Washington College is on phytoremediation of Lead, Zinc and Nickel using hyper accumulator plants.
