Dr. Showkat Ahmad Ganie is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Research Fellow at Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham, United Kingdom. He is a young scientist, and his research interests deal with understanding the regulation of abiotic stress (especially salt stress) responses in crops to increase their stress resistance, with the final aim to improve the crop productivity. He completed his PhD at ICAR-NBPGR, New Delhi, India, studying the molecular genetic diversity in rice with respect to salt tolerance. He has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Connecticut. Dr. Ganie has won several awards during his studies. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board of some reputed journals, including BMC Plant Biology, Food and Energy Security, AoB Plants, Journal of Plant Growth Regulation, Annals of Applied Biology, Plant Signaling & Behavior, and Heliyon.
