I am faculty member in the Computational Biology group at the The Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc), Chennai, India.
I was born in Cuttack, India and spent my first 7 years in a small industrial township Joda in Odisha. With my parents, I then moved to Kodarma in Jharkhand (formerly Bihar) for 2 years. In 1989, I moved to Delhi with my parents and settled there for next 20 years. In Delhi, I completed my Schooling, Bachelors, Masters and PhD.
In May 2008, I moved to Leipzig, Germany for my Postdoctoral work. In March 2010, I shifted my base to Orsay (suburb of Paris). Between, March 2010 and February 2012, I kept shuttling between Paris and Leipzig. In February 2012, I moved to Seattle, USA. In March 2013, I moved to Trieste, Italy to continue my research. I returned to India in 2014.
