I am a scientist/principal investigator who has a few research interests, mainly mRNA caps, nitrogen fixation, phytoremediation, molecular genetics and bioethics & biosafety. I’m also a poet who has published his poetry in American Journal of Poetry, Zingara Poetry Review, Eastlit, Kitaab, Boston Accent Lit, Canary Literary Magazine, Forage and Ravens Perch, along with a few other journals, while I too am a fledgling science communicator, who relays science using the commoner’s tongue. Two principal areas of research that I’m engaged in right now, involve Azolla pinnata and Non-rhizobial bacteria inhabiting root nodules in legumes.
