My Postdoctoral research is majorly focused on Meloidogyne chitwoodi, commonly known as Columbia Root Knot Nematode (CRKN). It is a soil borne pest which effects the potato production in the Pacific North-west. My prime focus is to decipher the defense mechanism against CRKN and also what causes the break-down of this resistance by an emerging CRKN pathotype, Roza. I am also performing fingerprinting and association mapping studies in potato.
