Dr. Saddam Hussain is working as an Assistant Professor in the area of Plant Stress Physiology at the Department of Agronomy, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad-Pakistan. He has been recognized with several international distinctions/awards in recent years. He published over 150 refereed journal papers (h-index: 46, citations: >7500), many of which have sought to understand the morphological, physiological, biochemical and molecular basis of crop responses to individual and concurrent abiotic stresses and mechanisms imparting tolerance for such stresses. He devised promising strategies for improving the crop performance under sub-optimum conditions (salinity, drought, submergence, temperature extremes, metal toxicity) and suggested various novel indicators for augmenting stress tolerance in plants. The impact of his publications is consistently on the increase, and he is now receiving over 1500 citations in each single year. Currently, he is working as an Editor/Editorial board member of several reputed international journals including Journal of Advanced Research (Elsevier, Q1, IF 10.48), Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety (Elsevier, Q1, IF 6.29), BMC Plant Biology (Springer, Q1 IF: 4.22), Journal of Plant Growth Regulation (Springer, Q1 IF 4.17), Food and Energy Security (Wiley, Q1, IF 4.11), Plants (Q1, IF: 3.94), Sustainability (IF: 3.25), PLOS One (Q1, IF: 3.24), and Crop Science-CSSA (Q1 IF 1.88), to name a few. He has supervised more than 80 post graduate students as major supervisor/supervisory committee member.
