I am working under under a joint research program between the University of Adelaide, Australia and the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom. Before joining these two Universities, I worked as a research assistant at Quaid-i-Azam University and National Agricultural Research Center (both located in Islamabad, Pakistan). My research at these institutions was focused on studying phenotypic and genetic variations for mineral efficiency, metal uptake and toxicity, stay green, and yield related traits in spring wheat. In future, I am interested to study genetic/genomic based models for developing climate-resilient crops.
