Bio

I am working as Associate Professor at King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. After completing my Ph.D. (Botany) from Jamia Hamdard, New Delhi, India in 2011, I have worked as Lecturer at the University of Kashmir, Srinagar for a short period. Later I joined Universiti Putra Malaysia, Selangor, Malaysia and worked there as Post Doctorate Fellow in 2012 and Fellow Researcher (Associate Prof.) from 2013-2016 respectively.

I have more than nine years of teaching and research experience in Plant Eco-Physiology, Biotechnology & Molecular biology, Plant-Microbe-soil interactions as well as in Environmental sciences. Recipient of several fellowships at both national and international levels. I have been appointed as the visiting Scientist at Fatih Universiti, Istanbul, Turkey as well as at Jinan University, Guangzhou, China. I have been involved with a number of international research projects with different Govt. organizations.

So far, I have edited and authored more than sixteen books with International publishers, including Springer International, Academic Press (Elsevier) etc. I have also to my credit more than 110 research publications in peer reviewed international journals, including 40 book chapters in edited volumes with international publishers.

Currently I am serving as the Editorial board member and reviewer of several high impact international Scientific Journals. I am also the Fellow of Plantae group from the American Society of Plant Biologists and the Asian Federation of Biotechnology, Korea. I have been listed also in Marquis Who’s Who in the World, since 2014-2016.

Currently I am engaged in studying the plant processes at Eco- physiological as well as molecular levels.
