I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow under the mentorship of Dr. Ashley Brown and Dr. Fran Ligler. I am working on developing fibrin-based materials for enhanced wound healing applications. I use the tools of lithography, surface chemistry and general biochemical assays to generate novel fibrin-based materials.
I completed my undergraduate Bachelor of Technology engineering degree in Industrial Biotechnology (Anna University, Guindy Campus, India), Master of Science degree in Biophysics and Biochemistry (Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago) and Doctoral degree in Biochemistry (University of Illinois Urbana Champaign). I completed my doctoral thesis on E-cadherin global mechanotransduction, under the mentorship of Deborah Leckband.
My work experience includes specific project roles as Research specialist at University of Illinois Chicago, Research Scientist at BioAnalytics and a Postdoctoral Fellow at University of Colorado Denver before moving to North Carolina State University.
Apart from work, I like to learn/be exposed to a new non-academic skill every year. I have chosen jiu jitsu for 2017, and for the year 2016, i learnt the basics of Swift 3 for a customized iOS app development. I love reading about new technologies and advances in biomedicine and diagnostics.
