I obtained my master’s degree in Agricultural Sciences from Banaras Hindu University with specialisation in Genetics and Plant breeding. I  obtained my PhD from Banaras Hindu University, in Biotechnology while I was working at National Botanical Research Institute, Lucknow. My doctoral dissertation was entitled “Studies  on interaction between cis  acting upstream sequences in  regulation  of  gene  expression  in  plants.” Thereafter, I was a Post doctoral fellow in Graduate School of Bio studies, Kyoto University, Japan, Where I worked on finding the mitotic function of topoisomerase II using genetical tools and time lapse microscopy of living yeast cell. I joined BITS, Pilani subsequently and presently serving as Professor  in the Biological Sciences department of BITS, Pilani at Goa campus.
