Area of Interest: Soybean seed composition, protein rebalancing and cell-cell signaling

Research: My research focuses on improving the nutritional value of soybean, mainly oil and protein, using gene-editing tools and omics approaches. I am also involved in understanding the mechanism of protein rebalancing in legumes. I works on the diverse soybean mutant population and characterize the genes contributing to the novel architecture and seed composition phenotypes.
