Research Interests:

Dr. Shivadhar Singh was born on 25th July 1957 in a small village, Madhia  (Chunar) of District Mirzapur (UP).  He had completed his matriculation and intermediate from PDND Intermediate College, Chunar, Mirzapur  and Govt. Inter College, Jakkhini, Varanasi in 1972 and 1974 respectively. He had completed his Bachelor degree in agriculture, B.Sc. (Ag) from Udai Pratap College, Varanasi (UP) in 1977 and passed out M.Sc. (Ag) in Plant Physiology from CSA University of Agrl. & Technology, Kanpur (UP) in 1989. Further he completed his doctoral degree (Ph.D) from Central Rice Research Institute, Cuttack (Orissa) under Utkal University, Bhubaneswar in 1985. He was selected as Scientist S1 through ARS in 1984 batch and joined  at CARI, Port Blair, Andamans and served there until 1995 the then transferred to IARI, New Delhi in 1995 and since then he has been working as Senior and Principal Scientist in the division of Environmental Sciences. He became Professor of the same division in 2008 and continuing till date.  He has been conferred with ICAR Research Team Award for the period of 1991-93 in 1995 and Best Teacher Award of IARI in 2010. He has been the fellow of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in 190-91. He has been the Principal Investigator of DFID funded  project on Air Pollution in collaboration with the Imperial College, London (UK) from 2001-04 and presently the Principal Investigator of Network Project on Climate Change at IARI Centre and CO-PI of NICRA Project at IARI, New Delhi. His major field of research have been on Environmental Stress and Crop productivity and Pollution Biology.
