Dr Radhika Desikan

March 25, 2021

Radhika has a PhD in plant science from University of the West of England, Bristol, and was an academic for several years. She taught plant science at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Her research interest was in understanding how plants tolerate abiotic and biotic stresses, and to investigate this at a cellular level. Her area of specialisation was plant cell signalling, in particular, free radicals. Radhika has published numerous papers during my research career, in this field. For a few years now, she has been editing academic papers in plant science for those whose native language is not English. Radhika enjoys the challenge of making plant science more readable and understandable, not just for plant scientists but non-academics too.
