I was awarded International Fellowship by Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR-IF) to carry out my PhD study in Chungbuk National University, South Korea. My Ph.D focused on exploring the biodiversity analysis of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and associated endobacteria to enhance plant salt stress tolerance. Prior to that, I worked as a senior research fellow at Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, India after completing my Masters in Agricultural Microbiology in the same institute. I have gained more experience on soil Microbiology and in plant microbe interaction during my studies.
Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Science in the 1994.
Master’s degree in Agro-Food Biotechnology in the 1996.
Doctoral degree in Food Sciences and Technology in the 2003.
Researcher in Agricultural Microbiology (Dipartimento di Agraia dell’Università degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II”) from May 3 2002 to September 30 2015.
Associate Professor in Wine Microbiology (Dipartimento di Agraia dell’Università degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II”) since October 1 2015.
The scientific activity focused on the following research areas:
Quality and microbiological safety of food production;
Microbiological and technological aspects of buffalo milk processing, cow and goat and their derivatives (mozzarella, cheese, cacioricotta, etc.), of meat sausages, of bakery products;
Molecular identification and characterization of pathogenic microorganisms in food products;
Study of the behaviour of pathogenic micro-organisms during the food production and optimization of the control methods;
Biotechnology starter and protective cultures: technological characteristics, selection and use of lactic acid bacteria and Micrococcaceae in dairy products and meat;
Molecular typing of lactic acid bacteria and Micrococcaceae.
The isolation, identification and biotyping (molecular and technological) of yeast and lactic acid bacteria “terroir” in order to constitute indigenous starter cultures are able to respect the authenticity, quality and safety of Southern Italian wines are its most recent search lines.
Is co-author of 76 publications on international journals.
Dr, Jiban Shrestha is working as a Scientist (Plant Breeding and Genetics) at National Maize Research Program, Rampur, Chitwan under Nepal Agricultural Research Council. I have been involved in basic and applied research on maize mainly related to development, maintenance and improvement of hybrid and open pollinated maize varieties as well as soil nutrient management for maize grown in various production systems. I have published 65 peer reviewed articles in both national and international journals, 10 proceeding papers and 2 books. I have been affiliated to 40 journals as editor or reviewer. I have worked as reviewer of 8 international conferences related to agriculture. I have joined as member of Society of Agricultural Scientist, Nepal (SAS-N), Agronomy Society Nepal (ASON), Asian Council of Science Editors(ACSE), European Association of Science Editors (EASE) and Council of Asian Science Editors (CASE). I have guided 7 agricultural graduate and 3 postgraduate students for their thesis research.
