I did my Undergrad in Bombay University, India in Biotechnology. After that I came to the US and did my Masters in Biotechnology at Northwestern University, Illinois. I am pursuing my PhD in Bioinformatics and computational biology at Iowa State University.
I am a teaching assistant in the EEOB department and have taught introductory biology labs and courses.
Evolution has fascinated me since I was a child and does now as well. When I am not trying to debug my code or trying to figure out what my PERL code from a year ago actually does, I write poems and have published a book in India as well. I love working in NGOs and work for an NGO called Sankalp here at Iowa State where help raise funds to improve literacy in India.
