Dr. Peeyush Sharma started her career as an Assistant Professor in Dryland Research Sub-Station, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology-Jammu in 2004. She received M.Sc and Ph.D degree in Soil Science from illustrious G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, Uttaranchal and was awarded Post Doctoral Fellowship with her work “Development and validation of simulation models to predict long term consequence of different tillage and residue management strategies”. Primarily her research is focused on modelling tillage with intervention of mulching and nutrient management to aggrade soil health and on developing ‘Tilth Index Model’ based on easily measurable soil properties to predict changes in soil productivity and identify the suitable tillage type that needs to be achieved for an optimal crop production. She was also awarded Postdoctoral fellowship in prestigious Institute of Soil Water and Environmental Sciences, ARO, Volcani Centre, Israel working on FTIR techniques to ‘characterize the soil organic carbon with the application of different doses of compost in different cropping system’ for one year (Nov 2013- Nov. 2014). Her present teaching assignment involves Advances in Soil Physics, Fundamentals of Soil Science and other courses for UG and PG and her future endeavours include research on biochar, soil physical properties and conservation tillage.
