I am P.Chitralekha from Delhi, India. I teach botany to undergraduate students. I am passionately interested in plant science. My primary interest has always been in research of fundamental aspects of plant biology but after teaching botany for 15 years I realize that I can teach well too. This is one of the reasons for my joining Wikieducator workshop, to get tips to be a better teacher.
After my doctoral research work I worked as a research associate for sometime before joining as lecturer in an undergraduate college in University of Delhi. I have developed course content for Life Sciences course in Indira Gandhi Open University, Delhi, india.
B.Sc.(H), M.Sc. M.Phil. Ph.D. in Botany. Certificate and diploma in German language
I am very interested in research and teaching anything that has to do with plants.
I collect stamps, coins and information on interesting facts/events, read books.
