Assistant Professor, Faculty of Science
I did my schooling from New Delhi, India before I came to the UK to for my Bachelors degree. I completed my BSc (hons.) in Biotechnology from The University of Nottingham and went on to do a PhD in Plant Sciences at the same University. I now work as a Senior Research Fellow at the Nottingham BBSRC Wheat Research Centre.
In the past I have worked extensively on genetic linkage mapping of wheat's wild relatives. I have also gained expertise in cytogenetic techniques such as Genomic in situ hybridisation (GISH) and Fluoresence in situ hybridisation (FISH). Currently, I am developing single nucleotide polymorphic (SNP) markers between wheat and its wild relatives that can be converted into KASP assays for genotyping of various introgressions lines being developed by us.
I am involved in conducting the practical classes based on Mendelian genetics for the first year undergraduate module Genes and Cells 1.
