I have graduated from Christ church college, Kanpur (with mathematics) and did my masters from Institute of Life Sciences Kanpur. I have done my Immunology from Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow under the under the guidance of Prof. S.S. Agarwal (Ex-Director and Founder member, SGPGI, Lucknow). During Ph.D. I have worked on studying effect on fever on the cellular immune responses. Earlier, I was a graduate student and conducted research in the Department of Plant Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

Presently, I am working on anticancer properties of camel milk proteins and their potential role as a drug delivery molecule. I have filed a patent on purification procedure of isolating lactoferrin from camel milk. Also a casein nanoparticle has been developed for better delivery of the Sorafenib, a drug used against hepatocellular carcinoma. Furthermore, I am also interested in mathematical modeling in area of cancer biology and Immunological systems. I attach high priority to foster skill development in students to solve real world problems.
