I grew on a small farm close to sandy desert of “Thar” in the northwestern state of Rajasthan in India. I am currently an Assistant Professor (Practice) at Oregon State University’s Columbia Basin Agricultural Research Center (CBARC). My current research focuses on alternative cropping systems, soil carbon dynamics, and soil health assessments for resilient dryland farming. I received BS Agriculture with soils major from Punjab Agricultural University, India and MS from University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, AR. I received PhD in soil science from the University of Tennessee focused on assessing soil health testing methods and understanding dynamics of soil carbon and nutrients for southeastern cropping systems. My doctoral research was focused on evaluating the suitability of currently available soil health assessment approaches for southeastern US and identifying regionally suitable soil health indicators. I love working in the field, reading history books, playing cricket, and long-drives.
