Dr. Harsh Garg has received her PhD degree from the University of Western Australia and examined host-pathogen interactions at cellular and molecular levels. She then worked as a NSERC visiting fellow at the Saskatoon Research and Development Centre (Canada) and as an assistant professor in the Punjab Agriculture University (India). She has received many scholarships and awards for her academic achievements. She has published more than 25 articles including peer-reviewed research papers, review articles, conference papers, etc. Her areas of interest include plant pathology and plant breeding, specifically, the mechanisms of host resistance (both at molecular and histology levels) against plant pathogen and breeding for resistance. She has now expanded her learning horizon to the photosynthesis area and is currently working as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Sydney examining biosynthesis and biochemistry of chlorophylls.
