Avishek Banik

Assistant Professor

I was born and brought up in Burdwan, West Bengal. During my early school days, I was fascinated with biology and opted for B. Sc. (Hons.) and M.Sc. in Microbiology from The University of Burdwan. There after I did my Ph.D. from ICAR- National Rice Research Institute (Odisha, India) on Nitrogen fixing endophytic and epiphytic bacteria community of different cultivated and wild rice genotypes. During my post-doctoral work at University of California, Davis (California, USA), I have worked in the field of microbial interactions in different wild rice genotypes. Apart from that, I have worked around two years as an Assistant Professor at RK University (Gujarat) where I have explored the microorganism and their interaction with groundnut to combat salinity and metal stress. My research mainly focused on different aspects of plant-microbe interactions through metabolomics, phenotyping and different molecular biological techniques.
