  1. Dear Dr. Serraj! I have heard you in Interdrought III at Shanghai last year. I am a big fan of you and of ICARDA. Many congratulations on joining ICARDA.

    I am a PhD student working on drought tolerance of Perennial ryegrass and plan to work with you some time in future on drought agronomy.
