Education Background:

Teaching Experience:

Teaching Assistant, Clark University (2011-Present) : Intro Biology, Genetics
Lecturer, V.G. Shivdare College, India (2010-2011): Molecular Biology and Genetics.

Research Interests: PLCγ is a highly conserved gene in eukaryotes and has been implicated in cancer development. My current research aims at finding molecules that could inhibit its expression which could potentially have applications in human anti-cancer drug designs. I specifically work with the Fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster as a model organism.
