My research interest is in genome editing using multiple approaches in important food crops. Previously, I worked on “Targeted editing of meiosis-specific genes to develop variety-specific true potato seed” and "Genome editing to increase β-carotene in banana fruit" During my Ph.D., I worked on “Characterization of Myo-inositol oxygenase gene and its promoter from Triticum aestivum L.”. In addition, I developed methods for Agrobacterium and biolistics mediated transformations of several plant species, including Arabidopsis, tobacco, tomato, rice, and medicinal plants. I am interested in collaborating and serving the plant science community with my experiences in genome editing and plant tissue culture.
