I am currently working as an Assistant Professor at Central University of Himachal Pradesh, India. I have obtained PhD in Biochemistry from University of Hyderabad. During the PhD program I have carried out my research at European Molecular Biology Laboratory-Hamburg (Germany) and Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics (India) in the laboratories of biochemistry and structural biology supervised by Prof. Seyed E Hasnain (CDFD-India) and Dr. Matthias Wilamanns (EMBL-Germany) (2004-2009). I was awarded with a DAAD fellowship for my doctoral studies and later on an EMBO long term fellowship for my post-doctoral research at EMBL-Hamburg. I also serve in several international journals as editorial board member/reviewer, published by Nature publishing group, Biomed central, PLoS, Elsevier, Taylor & Francis and Springer. I was a visiting lecturer at Universiti Technology Malaysia. So far, my research interest is focused on therapeutic targets from mycobacterial pathogens and potential microbial agents important for sustainable development. Main area of research includes transcription, post-translational modifications and membrane proteins.
