Research Experience

I hold 9 years of research experience working with a number of projects related to human diseases since I completed PhD in 2007 (University of Nottingham, UK). I am highly experienced working with cell biology, biochemical and biophysical techniques. I have published 44 research articles and have attended over 50 conferences where I have regularly presented research work. The focus of my research program is to understand host-viral interactions to develop antiviral treatments. I am also investigating structure-function relationships of focal adhesion proteins – Zyxin and WTIP and study their role in cancer and kidney diseases respectively.
