RESEARCH EXPERIENCE :
● March ‘18 – present : iGEM 2018 : Paris Bettencourt Team, STAR CORES March ‘18 – present
Our project aims to prototype the production of AMPs inside a tractable, inexpensive
biological model organism – the bacterium E. coli – by incorporating naturally occurring or
computer-aided design of AMP-coding genes.
● February ‘18 -July ‘18 : Graduate Research Intern
Analysis of multiomics data for growth controlled E. coli strain, under the co-supervision
of Dr. Hidde De Jong and Dr. Delpine Ropers at Institut national de recherche en
informatique et en automatique (INRIA), Grenoble Rhône-Alpes, France.
● September ‘16 – August ‘17 : Project Assistant
The approach incorporating a systems level analysis, with an extensive genome wide
evaluation of the mutations in the clinical isolates, to identify the highly potential targets,
followed by a proteome based analysis to design potential inhibitors, to aid the on-going
efforts of TB- translational research, under the Principal Investigator Prof. Samir Kumar
Brahmachari at Council for Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) – Institute of Genomics
and Integrative Biology, Delhi, India.
● June ‘16 – July ‘16 : Summer Research Fellow
Cloning of miRNA 156 promoter (2.7kb) for its characterization in potato (Solanum tuberosum ssp andigena ), under the supervision of Dr. Anjan Kumar Banerjee at Indian Institute of
Scientific Education and Research, Pune, India through Indian Academy of Sciences.
