Dr. Rajib Roychowdhury is presently working as Postdoctoral Visiting Scientist at the Institute of Plant Sciences of Agricultural Research Organization (ARO) – Volcani Center, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Israel. His current research is focusing on Genetics and Breeding of Berry fruits (strawberry, blueberry, raspberry) to improve yield and quality under Mediterranean climate. In the postdoctoral tenure, Dr. Roychowdhury extensively worked on Winter Cereal Genetics and Breeding, especially to improve wheat in Israeli semiarid environments (a part of fertile crescent of wheat domestication) using diverse genetic stocks like modern cultivars, landraces, durum, spelt, dicoccum, emmer, etc. Dr. Roychowdhury received his Ph.D. in Plant Biotechnology from Visva-Bharati Central University (India) for research on previously unreported rice landraces for their agromorphology, grain quality, and abiotic stress tolerance. Later, he also did short-term postdoctoral research on "Metalloid stress tolerance in rice" under a CSIR project (Government of India) from Assam Central University, Silchar, India. During master’s and post-master’s tenure, he worked a lot on mutation breeding in Carnation, which was a pioneering work on this floricultural crop in South-East Asia. Dr. Roychowdhury was elected as a Fellow Member of the Linnaean Society of London, UK. His biography was published in the Pearl Edition of Marquis Who’sWho of the World, USA. In 2019, he got the travel award by International Wheat Initiative (Germany) for presenting his research in the 1st International Wheat Congress (Saskatoon, Canada) and to participate in the pre-conference workshop on 'Un-manned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) based phenotyping for wheat improvement'. Dr. Roychowdhury has written several impacted research papers, review articles, invited chapters, and books in both international and nationally reputed journals and publishers. Till date, his publications got a total of 1400 citations as per GoogleScholar with the h-Index 15. Dr. Roychowdhury serves as Editorial Board member in 'South African Journal of Botany' (Elsevier), and reviewed manuscripts for 'Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution' (Springer), 'Phytoparasitica' (Springer), 'Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety' (Elsevier), and 'Journal of Crop Improvement' (Taylor & Francis).
Dr. Shuvasish Choudhury is an Assistant Professor at Assam University, Silchar, India since 2009. He obtained his M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. in Life Sciences from Assam University, Silchar and Post Doctorate from Oklahoma State University, USA. He has published more than 40 research and review articles including book chapters in journals and volumes of national and international repute. He has been awarded Young Botanist Award by Indian Botanical Society in 2010 and thereafter with FAST TRACK Young Scientist Award and Overseas Associateship by SERB and Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India respectivley. Dr. Choudhury has undertaken several research projects in the multi-disciplinary areas of plant sciences, funded by agencies of Government of Indian such as University Grants Commission (UGC), Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) and Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). He is also enlisted reviewer for several journals published by Springer, Elsevier, American Chemical Society, etc. His research interest involves understanding the molecular physiological and metabolomic basis of abiotic stress perception and tolerance in crops especially metalloid and drought stress. Besides this, his research also involves identification of bioactive markers compounds in medicinal plants used by local and indigenous people of Northeast India. Dr. Choudhury teaches biochemistry, plant systems biology and analytical instrumentation.
Dr. Mirza Hasanuzzaman is Professor of Agronomy at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He received his Ph.D. in ‘Plant Stress Physiology and Antioxidant Metabolism’ from the United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Ehime University, Japan, as a recipient of a scholarship from the Japanese government (MONBUKAGAKUSHO). Later, he completed his postdoctoral research at the Center of Molecular Biosciences, University of the Ryukyus, Okinawa, Japan, as a recipient of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) postdoctoral fellowship. Subsequently, he received the Australian Government’s Endeavour Research Fellowship for postdoctoral research as an Adjunct Senior Researcher at the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture, University of Tasmania, Australia. Mirza Hasanuzzaman has supervised 20 M.S. students His current work is focused on the physiological and molecular mechanisms of environmental stress tolerance. Prof. Hasanuzzaman has published over 120 research publications in peer-reviewed journals. He has edited 12 books and written 45
