I am currently a Post-Doctoral researcher at Institute of Molecular Evolution, Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. I did my Phd in network modelling of lateral inheritance in genome and language evolution. My current research involves evolutionary origin of archaeal higher taxa, modelling of Lateral Transfer System in Biology as well as in Linguistics. My research is supervised by Prof. William F. Martin and financed under DFG interdisciplinary project grand.
I joined in Institute of Molecular Evolution (Previously Botanik3) on 2009 January. Before that i was working as a junior Research Associate in IBMS, Academia Sinica , Taiwan. I involved in developing a fast network based scoring algorithm for protein docking.
I received my Masters in Bioinformatics (2006) from Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, India. And Bachelors in Computer Science from Kerala University, Trivandrum, India .
I attended 2007 EMBL-EBI summer project supervised by Nick Luscombe. Research students from many countries were participated on that interdisciplinary 'Funcltional Integration of Data' [FIND] project held in EBI campus.
I carried out my Master's thesis, 'Protein Contact Networks' at CCMB, Hyderabad supervised by Dr. Somdatta Sinha. Also I participated summer school in 2006.
