I have completed my graduation in 1995 from Banaras Hindu University (BHU), India. I was appointed as an Assistant Professor in Department of Botany, MMV, BHU in 2005. Presently I am working as an Associate Professor and pursuing teaching and research in the area of plant microbe interactions. Our research group has been working on the tripartite association between the soil, microbes and plants to screen potential biocontrol agents and plant growth promoting rhizobacteria to meet the goals of sustainable agriculture. We have also isolated and characterized the bioactive compounds from the biocontrol agents and have done in silico studies to find the potential targets of these compounds. I have published 50 research papers, 32 book chapters and have edited 1 book. I have completed 2 projects funded by DBT and DST, Govt. of India and have received 5 awards in conferences for best poster and research article. I have organized 7 conferences at BHU and have also worked at various administrative levels in the University.
