The research is based on toxic effects of bulk- and nano-forms of metals, and investigating the bioaccumulation, bio/geo-transformations, uptake, translocation, and toxic effects of bulk- and nano-forms of metals on plant physiology, morphology, anatomy, the ultrastructure of cellular and subcellular organelles, cytomorphometric modifications, and DNA damage
The research in the field of Nanobiotechnology, especially in the process development for the synthesis of nanomaterials, their characterizations by various nanotechnology techniques such as UV-Vis spectroscopy, Nanoparticles Tracking and Analysis, Zeta potential measurement, Transmission Electron Microscopy and SAED analysis, Fourier Transform Infra Red spectroscopy analysis and other nanotechnological and biotechnology techniques, evaluation of effects of nanomaterials on seed germination of economically important crops and development of nano-based product for sustainable agriculture and environment
The current research is focussed on exploring the genetic basis of the function of PGPR bacteria that are helpful in solubilization of nutrients, alleviating soil and plant health by remediation of selected pollutants; the exploring selected probiotic's function based on NRPS, PKS producing genes/gene clusters
Research project title: Consciousness and autobiographical narrative: an epistemological analysis
His expertise is in the field of geography of knowledge and innovation, and his recent studies cover the research questions of a) spatial clustering of innovation (and knowledge), b) knowledge flows and innovation networking, c) development of regional territorial-adaptive innovation policies, taking into account territorial capital, institutional context and new regional development trajectories
Design and development of layered double hydroxides (LDHs) and their composite materials for energy storage applications
The research focuses on the toxic effects of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) and explores bioaccumulation, biotransformations, uptake, translocation, and their impact on various aspects of plant biology. This includes plant physiology, biochemistry, morphology, anatomy, the ultrastructure of cellular and subcellular organelles, cytotoxicity, genotoxicity, and molecular studies related to the plant's sensing and responses to these pollutants at the genetic level and their regulatory mechanisms.
