I am a PhD student in the lab, and am registered with SASTRA University, Tanjore. I work on gene expression dynamics of E.coli during batch culture. Apart from which I am interested in examining the gene expression regulation in E.coli by horizontally acquired genes.
I did my B.Sc. (Biotechnology), in A.V.C College, Mayiladuthurai in 2006. After which I was the Bharathidasan University gold medalist for M.Sc. (Biotechnology), 2008. I was working as a Junior Bio-Informatician till August 2010 in a Bangalore based Bioinformatics company. This was after my short 6 months internship in the same company, supported by the Biotech Consortium India Limited (BCIL). I have been in NCBS since August 2010, temporarily supported initially (till December 2010) by Dr. Sowdhamini's group.
I hold a DST-INSPIRE fellowship.
Apart from the lab work, I am a newbie learning carnatic music, and I do cook whenever am scared of watching Narasimma!!
