Azul Natural Pvt. Ltd. Durango, Mexico


I have 13 years of extensive research experience in different areas of Genomics (specifically plant and microbial genomics). I completed my doctoral studies from India (2004-2010) and the main area of my doctoral works was plant pathogen genomics. I have more than 5 years of postdoctoral research experience (2009-2016). During Postdoctoral studies at prestigious Bose Institute (India, 2009-2011) and UNAM (Mexico, 2011-2013) I focused on exploring the possible role of different stress responsive plant genes, specially plant microRNAs, during biotic and abiotic stresses. During my final postdoctoral stay (2014-2016) at UNALM, Peru I worked on industrially important microbial genomics. I published 30 scientific articles (3 articles as corresponding author and 15 articles as first author) in different reputed International peer reviewed journals like Journal of Biotechnology, Plant Science, Plant Physiology, PLoS One, Journal of Integrative Plant Biology, Virus Research, Molecular Biotechnology, 3 Biotech etc. Total citations and total impact factors of my articles are 325 and 43.3 respectively, while my H index is 11 (Google Scholar). I am a reviewer of several International journals such as 3 biotech (Spriger), Virology Journal (BMC), Agri Gene (Elsevier), Advances in Bioscience and Biotechnology (Scientific Research), Peer J, Physiological and Molecular Plant Pathology (Elsevier), Journal of Agricultural Science and Technology; as well editor of Journal of Genomes and Proteomes, Journal of Genomics and Gene Study and Archives of life sciences. In August 2015 I have been selected among Top 50 Peruvian Scientist (49th) of Peru surveyed by Webometrics Ranking of World Universities. In 2016 I have been qualified as Research Investigator by DINA, CONCYTEC, Peru. I have 2+ years of teaching experience of PhD students (Biotechnology) at UNALM, Peru. I am result-oriented, highly motivated, fast learner and a good team player. I have the ability to write research projects, design and perform research experiments independently or with a group of professionals.
