Research interests


  • Understanding impact of agricultural practices on GHG emissions
  • Nutrient (NPK) cycling in agroecosyetms and the effect on N2O and CO2 emissions
  • C sequestration and GHG dynamics in natural vegetation and  agricultural lands
  • Assessing the impact of drying and rewetting on GHG dynamics
