Research Profile

My research interests encompass the application of molecular techniques to understanding the various aspects of plant biodiversity, such as complementing the use morphology to gain new insights in taxonomy, species identification, population studies, understanding evolutionary relationships and facilitating conservation decisions. I have previously studied the parentage identification and clonal genetic structure of the hybrid plant Cryptocoryne (Araceae).

Current Research

 

1. Utilizing molecular DNA markers (AFLP, RAPD, microsatellite, cpDNA and nrDNA) in plant taxonomy and parentage identification of plant hybrids.

2. Development of molecular markers through next generation sequencing (NGS).

3. Identification, validation and cross-species transferability of SSRs through plant species.
