Dr. Krithika Anbazhagan

Krithika Anbazhagan is working with the GEMS team as a Visiting Scientist since Dec 2017. Her primary research project, in collaboration with WorldVeg, is on phenotyping elite genotypes of mungbean for drought adaptation. She is also involved and deriving mungbean crop growth parameters for crop models and farmer-participatory studies to extend relevant research technologies/ solutions and understand the complexities of the farming systems. Her other interest includes nutrition-sensitive agriculture, the potential of landraces and underutilized crops, and farming system research. She has supervised 3 intern students. She has two publications from her Ph.D. (h-Index 2) that focused on phenotyping transgenic chickpea for abiotic stress responses.
