My interest is to understand the molecular basis of antibiotic persistence in mycobacteria. I like to learn from my lab members’ exciting new data, listen to their ideas, and develop future directions.
I received my Ph.D. degree in Microbiology from IISER Bhopal, India. As a post-doctoral researcher, I am interested in understanding the mechanism of antibiotic persistence in Mycobacterium tuberculosis with hibernating ribosomes under zinc-deprived conditions.
As a research scientist in the lab, I manage experimental animals and perform research with these animals. I addition, I am also gaining expertise in ribosome biochemistry.
I am a PhD candidate in the SUNY Albany’s Biomedical Science program. My research focus is to visualize mycobacteria with hibernating ribosomes and study antibiotic persistence in such cells.

I am a PhD candidate in the SUNY Albany’s Biomedical Science program. I have a bachelor's degree in biology from the University at Albany. My research focuses on the physiological consequences of zinc and amino acid starvation in mycobacteria.
I’m currently a pre-med undergraduate studying regulation of Mpy function in ribosome hibernation.
