Research profile

My research interest lies in the pursuit of climate change impact assessment on crops and probable Agronomic management options to address these issues. I have been involved in Model development and improvement in the BioMA (Biophysical Model Applications) platform at Joint Research Centre, European Commission for climate change impact assessment in view of IPCC SERES scenarios in European member states (EU27).
