Narashiman N.

Indian Institute of Sciences (Aug. 2023-)

I did my B.Sc. in Plant Biology and Plant Biotechnology from Presidency College, Chennai. I am interested in wide variety of fields such as pollination and floral ecology, plant-plant interactions and Taxonomy of all divisions of plant and fungi . Apart from the subject I am interested in pencil sketching and carnatic music.
