Welcome to my webpage!!

             I am a biogeochemistry enthusiast, fascinated by the microbial diversity and their interaction, participation in various                    biogeochemical cycles, the evolution of life and biodiversity on Earth. My research focuses on the role of arsenic metabolizing         microbial assemblages in arsenic contaminated aquifers of middle and lower gangetic plains, and to understand how the                     sedimentary organic matter that leaches into the aquifers during recharge, shapes those indigenous microbial populations.
