I did my Post Graduation from University of Rajasthan, Jaipur in Zoology with specilaization in Cell and Molecular Biology. I obtained my PhD in Biotechnology from Biological Sciences Group, Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani in 2009. The topic of my thesis was “Studies on the Drug Resistance Genes In Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax from India’. Thereafter, I joined as a Research Associate in a DBT sponsored project entitled “A Systems Biology approach towards understanding Severe Malaria with special reference to the Transcriptome and Proteome of the Parasite and the Host”. In 2010 I was awarded the prestigious “UGC- Dr. D.S.Kothari Post doctoral fellowship”. I joined BITS Pilani as a faculty in 2012. Currently I'm working as Associate Professor in Department of Biological Sciences, BITS, Pilani.

I believe that teaching and research goes hand in hand. So I wish to accel equally in both teaching and research. My research interests include Molecular Parasitology especially related to the malaria parasite, Cell and Molecular Biology and Immunology.
