I am a Ph.D. student in the lab, and am registered with Transdisciplinary University (TDU), Bangalore. My research work focuses on understanding the impact of chromosome organization on global gene expression and evolution of Escherichia coli. Earlier reports suggest that a range of fundamental genome structural features have been evolved around the single origin concept in bacteria. This led us to ask how do bacteria compensate for a significant perturbation to the replicative structure of the genome and what are the evolutionary strategies accessed by bacteria to maintain the global gene expression patterns.

I have done my B.Sc in microbiology and M.Sc in Biotechnology from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham University, Coimbatore. I joined the lab in 2014 as a JRF.
