Biography :

My research is focused on various aspects of plant tissue culture, be it development of micropropagation technologies for different plant species, selection of genetically superior cell lines for various traits, optimization of tissue culture protocols for use in genetic transformation, development of cell culture technologies for production of phytopharmaceuticals in high value medicinal plants. I was conferred with Indian Science Congress Young Scientist Award in 2011 for my Phd research work.I have developed  successful micropropagation technology in my lab for 16 different plant species and others are in progress. I am presently focusing on sharing these developed technologies for endangered plants with farmers for improving their socio economic status. I have 03 granted Patent as lead inventor from Govt.of India in my credit. I was awarded with International Scholarship by the Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation (MASHAV) Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs which was availed at  The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
