After completing my PhD in Life science from ILS, Bhubaneswar, ODISHA, India, I went for postdoc at IOWA STATE University in Department of Agronomy. I worked on nohost resistance against Phytopthora sojae in Arabidopsis. I was selected for Assistant Professor at NIT Rourkela and joined the institute in 2014 and i am involved in working with rice blast and sheath blight diseases. We are trying to understand the mechanism of nonhost resistance and programmed cell death in plants against the two diseases.
