Dr Chai Hui Hui


Dr Chai Hui Hui received her PhD from University of Nottingham. Her area of interest includes exploitation of plant water relations (drought), genetic analysis of agronomic traits and using tools developed in major or model plant species for analysis in underutilised crop species.
