I am a Microbiologist, working in different aspects of microbial interactions. 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. Thereafter I did my Ph.D. from ICAR- National Rice Research Institute (Odisha, India) on Nitrogen fixing endophytic and epiphytic bacteria communities of different cultivated and wild rice genotypes. During my post-doctoral work at the 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 for around two years as an Assistant Professor at RK University (Gujarat) where I have explored 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.
