Department of Plant Biology at UC Davis
Ravi did his B.Sc.(Agriculture) at Agricultural College and Research Institute, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, Republic of India. Later he became interested in plant breeding and thus went on to complete M.Sc.(Agriculture) with specialization in Plant breeding and Genetics at Centre for Plant Breeding and Genetics(CPBG), Tamil Nadu Agricultural University(TNAU), Coimbatore. He was awarded with Junior and Senior Research Fellowships from University Grants Commission(UGC) to pursue his Ph.D. at Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology(CCMB) Hyderabad,Andhra Pradesh, a constituent research laboratory of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research(CSIR), Govt. of India. Currently he is a postdoc working on centromere biology in Arabidopsis thaliana.
