Biography

Rajni Devi is a PhD research scholar in Department of Microbiology at Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana, India. She has received her bachelor degree in Basic Sciences from CSKHPKV Palampur, India. She holds a master’s degree in Microbiology that focuses on microbial diversity and plant growth promoting activity of termite mound soil. During her master’s she has explored the microbial species isolated from termite mound soil against plant and human pathogens. Her doctoral research investigates the production of bioethanol from spent mushroom substrates of Pleurotus florida and Agaricus bisporus. She has also studied various lignocellulolytic enzymes under both axenic and non axenic conditions. She intends to broaden her knowledge of the major benefits, limitations and future prospects in using lignocellulosic biomass for biofuels production.
