Biography
Dr. Raju Bheemanahalli grew up on a family farm in Bheemanahalli, India. He later earned both a master's and a doctoral degree from the University of Agricultural Sciences in Bengaluru, India, where he graduated as a gold medalist. After completing his Ph.D., Raju transitioned to work at the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines before accepting a post-doctoral position at Kansas State University. Dr. Raju authored or co-authored 33 peer-reviewed journal articles, two book chapters, and >50 national or international conference abstracts. Since accepting his current position as an Assistant Research Professor at Mississippi State University in 2020, Raju's research concentrated on connecting classical stress physiological and remote sensing/high throughput phenotyping tools to improve field crops' resilience to abiotic stress.
Research Interest
My research focused on improving the resilience of field crops to abiotic stresses at different development stages.
Key research areas:
Plant responses to abiotic stress, Adaptive traits & Climate resilience, Reproductive physiology, Remote sensing applications in phenotyping, Phenome to genome, Management practices to improve soil and plant health.
Hobbies
I enjoy playing and watching cricket, playing chess, and listening to music.
