Research Summary

My research interests involve understanding the sustainability of agricultural and other natural ecosystems ?primarily investigating the impact of land use effects on ecosystem functioning, effects of global warming, relationship between plant communities and productivity. It is important to realize that, in future, sustainable systems should be able to achieve higher productivity while preserving the environment. A paradigm shift in how we approach basic issues is necessary to address the problems related to sustainability within our world. It is my desire to be at the forefront of this quest.
