I am interested in plant-microbial interactions, specifically related to microbial assisted plant nutrition. I currently work with nitrogen fixation and phosphate nutrition in model legumes.
I completed my PhD in 2018 looking at bacterial assistance in plant phosphate nutrition (Lincoln University, New Zealand). I completed my M.Sc. in Plant genetic engineering in 2013 (UCC/ Teagasc, Ireland) and my engineering (B.Tech) from India in 2010.
