”The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education” ~ Albert Einstein
Namasté! I am a Senior Scientist in Systems Biology at Birla Institute of Scientific Research (BISR), Jaipur, India. I obtained my PhD from Aalborg University, Denmark after having worked in Lene Juel Rasmussen's lab. I went on to gain seven years of post-doctoral experience and sabbatical visits in various laboratories before taking up the current position. I love traveling and had been to over 70+ countries.
I'm a dry biologist curious to know how of a biology of a system. My interests are to study protein-protein interactions and top-down systems biology of hypothetical proteins, long noncoding RNAs in human, focusing on next generation sequencing sequencing approaches to identify regulatory aspects of the genome. My recent interests have been into elucidating the known unknown mechanisms underpinning small molecular interactions through clinical exomes. Apart from this, I have had intermittently worked on identifying the candidate genes involved in synthetic framework in bacteria. Besides this, I am an opportunist helper in providing bioinformatics/systems solutions to scientists in other allied fields.
