My research interests lies in two main focal areas. The first is plant- microbe- interaction. The other area is the study of microbial surfactants (Biosurfactants), isolation of potential biosurfactants producing strains, their characterization, in-situ production of biosurfactants from inexpensive raw materials and application of these bio-molecules in waste water treatment (Petrochemical industry), suitable for meeting the standard of agriculture industry. I love to work on Industrial waste water treatments challenges, market demand agricultural products and environmental friendly technology.
