Research Areas/Interest

Plants are unique as they have their own way to adapt in varying environmental conditions. In Environmental Bioengineering Lab UTM, my team is focusing on how local plants respond to stress, specifically in heavy metal exposure.  We try to understand how these plants maintain their growth and development in metal stress condition. The physiological and biochemical changes of plants are also being investigated as these plants probably have the capacity to be used as phytoremediation agent.
