Brief Biography

From a very young age I have been in a scientific environment and became passionate about biology early on in my life.
Cancer biology and virology research has always fascinated me, for my dissertation I worked in a Hepatitis C virus project which made me realise how passionate I was towards biomedical research. Further more I have worked in a laboratory that specialises in mitochondrial research.
I also want to explore bioinformatics, omics and Systems biology related fields in the near future. I am open to experimentation.
In addition to academics I am also a Trained Indian Classical Vocalist, trained in Nazrul Geeti (Indian classical genre) till 3rd year of examination. Also a trained Kathak Dancer till 3rd year of examination. I was part of my University’s Music club SNUPHORIA. I joined as an Indian Vocalist and later served as Student Mentorship Program (SMP) coordinator for a short period of time as well as the judge for the Indian vocals entry. I love meeting new people, adventure and enjoy beautiful sceneries as well as photography. Cooking and music is therapeutic to me, I enjoy a good company of diverse people and absolutely adore animals.
