Dr. Laila Naher obtained her Ph.D. in the field of Mycology and Plant Pathology from Faculty of Science, Universiti Putra Malaysia in 2011. Then, she continue as a Post-Doctoral fellow at the same University. She joined as a senior lecturer at Faculty of Agro-Based Industry, University Malaysia Kelantan in 2014. She teaches the subjects are Postharvest Technology, Plant Disease Management, Molecular Biology, and Crop Protection. She has published more than 25 journal articles and 10 proceedings since 2011 and currently one book chapters under press.
Dr. Laila Naher’s research field focus on Mycology and Plant Pathology. The main aspects is for fungal isolation and identification as well as identification of biocontrol agent such as Trichoderma species for management of plant diseases. Besides that, understanding the gene that involved either as plant defence response or biocontrol process against the pathogen in interaction between pathogen-plant-biocontrol and pathogen-biocontrol agent provide to identify superlative fungal agent for disease suppression as well as deliver the insight feature at molecular level between the interactions. Furthermore, the composting or biofungicides development using most promising fungal agent involved for sustainable crop production and maintain green environment.
