Anindya Kundu is a postdoctoral research associate at the Crop Science Centre. He received his B.Sc. in Botany and M.Sc. in Biophysics and Molecular Biology at Calcutta University in India. After receiving his master’s degree, he joined the lab of Professor Maitrayee DasGupta at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Calcutta as a NET-CSIR Fellow. His research focused on understanding the root-nodule symbiosis in a crack-entry legume Arachis hypogaea (groundnut). Anindya received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Calcutta in 2017. He then joined Professor Shubho Cahudhuri’s lab at Bose Institute as a DBT-Postdoctoral Research Associate to understand epigenetic changes in rice leading to salt tolerance. In 2019, Anindya moved to the UK and joined Richard Harrison’s research group. He is currently working on understanding actinorhizal symbiosis and using the knowledge to engineer nodule organogenesis in non-nodulators at the Crop Science Centre.
