            I am working as Assistant Professor (Hort.) in Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kancheepuram. Challenges have always motivated me to bring the best out of myself and strive to achieve the greatest. My father is a farmer and I spent my childhood on a farm. So, I have been involved for my entire life with the issues that concern me most. Those things motivated me to study horticulture, as I believed it would bring me closer to finding answers to the challenging questions of horticulture.  I have completed B.Sc. (Hort.), M.Sc. (Hort.) and Ph.D. Horticulture in Fruit Science degrees in the year 2009, 2011 and 2015 respectively from Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU), Coimbatore with distinct academic records.  I have secured first class OGPA (2005-2009 batch) during my B.Sc. (Hort.) program at Adhiparasakthi Agricultural College, Kalavai.

I have published five International, three National, four popular articles and eight Book chapters and also I have cleared ASRB NET in Fruit science in the year 2013.  I have 3+ years of experience in teaching. I can teach my students in an innovative trend with the experiences I had so far. I realize that the students are the future assets of the society. In-depth knowledge of various technologies adapted in horticultural sciences. Highly experienced in fruit cultivation under Ultra High Density Planting. I would like to share the knowledge acquired by me so far for the welfare of society.
