Agriculture has recently emerged as the largest contributor to the ‘sulphur footprint’, surpassing industrial emissions. Overuse of sulphur fertilisers can be damaging to human health and the environment. SCELSE PhD student, Arijit Mukherjee is attempting to develop ‘sustainable microbial solutions’ to tackle this. Watch the video above to learn more about his research.

His work has been selected as one of the top five finalists with a $750 USD travel grant for the 3 Minutes Thesis (3MT) competition, at the Plant Biology ’23 conference, Savannah, Georgia, USA organised by the American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) to be held on August 5-8 2023. Well done, Arjit for pushing the needle towards a more sustainable world!
