My research interests lie at the interface of biotechnology development and regulatory policy decision-making. I examine how opening-up the social dimensions of genomic technology development in forestry can create space for new kinds of conversations about, and opportunities to reflect on, the broader social implications of promising biotechnologies.

Canola is a major oilseed crop contributing to $26.7 billion to the Canadian economy annually. However, the productivity heavily relies on successful pollination of the plant. Therefore, I study how proteins critical for successful pollination interact with one another during the process in canola.

PHS is the premature germination of grains while the head is still maturing in the field. My project is based on our previous finding that the role of AGO4 related to the PHS in barley and wheat The goal is to create several lines for PHS resistance breeding.

I am studying how specific epigenetic modifications & transcriptional regulation affect cell reprogramming & early development in embryos created by somatic cell nuclear transfer. Findings from my research may have impactful implications in biotechnology, assisted reproductive technologies, and cell therapy.

My doctoral research is focusing to prevent lipid or free fatty acids oxidation in rice bran to improve its oil quality. For this I am targeting phospholipase D alpha1 and lipoxygenase 3 (LOX3) gene in rice through CRISPR/Cas9 as ribonucleoprotein complex.
