My research interests are focused on understanding plant diversification using molecular tools, exploring plastome evolution, and tracing the biogeographic patterns of plants.
Currently I am working on a medicinally important plant (Sarsaparilla) Smilax- Taxonomy, molecular phylogenetics and biogeographic patterns of the genus Smilax in India .
