Research Associate I

I received my M.S. degree in Zoology from Tribhuwan University, Nepal in 2008 and in Biological Sciences from South Dakota State University in 2013. From 2010 to 2013, I was a graduate research and teaching assistant worked on sheep nematode management using native plant extracts. I have been working as a research associate in Dr Alison Robertson’s laboratory since July 2013. My current research projects include i) determining if epiphytic population of Clavibacter michiganensis subspecies nebraskensis differ from the disease causing population and ii) determining the effect of winter rye as a cover crop in corn seedling diseases.
