The majority of my research projects deal with tissue culture, cryopreservation, sustainable floriculture, and medicinal plants.

My current research focuses on:

a) In-vitro propagation (tissue/cell culture) and gene-banking (cyopreservation) of the imperiled/rare Floridian native plants (mostly orchids)
b) Optical non-destructive handheld sensor technology for sustainable fertilizer management in horticultural crops
c) Anti-quorum sensing activity of medicinal plants
d) Seed technology and biotechnology
