A Bit About Me

I am working towards unveiling the epigenetic regulation of heat stress responses and establishment of plant stress memory. Identification of principal regulators of plant stress response will pave path towards the development of a feasible system for  crop improvement programs. 

I was awarded with the Fulbright-Nehru Fellowship 2023. In my free time, I like to write poetry and blogs or dance. I manifest to be a scientific researcher in the field of plant epigenetics.
