I am an interdisciplinary researcher currently working between INRIA- Paris and Institut Pasteur at the interface of Computational, Systems and Synthetic Biology with Control Theory, a field that has been penned as Cybergenetics. My work relates to optimal control of synthetic microbial communities and its application in the field of bioproduction. This is in the framework of an EU funded project called COSY-BIO (http://www.cosy-bio.eu/).
I did my undergraduate studies in Chemical Engineering (B.E. (Hons.)) from BITS Pilani, India. My Masters degree was in interdisiciplinary Approaches to life sciences at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research (CRI) in Paris.
I have previously worked on wide ranging topics including Biophysics (Tom Shimizu, AMOLF, Amsterdam), Molecular Biology (Didier Mazel, Institut Pasteur, Paris), Bioinformatics and DNA Repair (Ivan Matic, Institut Cochin, Paris) and Malaria biology and vaccine development (Rogerio Amino & Robert Ménard, Institut Pasteur, Paris).
I am interested in the broad fields of Evolution, Biophysics and Complexity Theory.
