Department

Currently I am working as an assistant professor in the Department of Botany of The Cochin College. I have a UGC minor project (2014-2016). Besides the academic activities, I am working as programme officer in the National Service Scheme and the Red Ribbon Club of the college. I am also working as an executive member in the Women’s Guidance Cell, the Nature Club and the Career Guidance Club of the college.
