I work at The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy. I am part of the new ICTP research initiative on Quantitative Biology.
I am also a visiting scholar in the lab of Prof. N. Louise Glass, Energy Biosciences Institute, University of California, Berkeley, USA.
My previous Postdoctoral positions were with Prof. Jürgen Jost at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences, Leipzig, Germany, Prof. Olivier C. Martin at the Laboratoire de Physique Théorique et Modèles Statistiques (LPTMS), Université Paris-Sud, Orsay, France, and Prof. Nathan D. Price at the Institute for Systems Biology, Seattle, USA.
I was born in Cuttack, India and spent my first 7 years in a small industrial town Joda, Orissa. I then moved to Kodarma, Jharkhand (formerly in 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.
