I am currently pursuing my PhD under the guidance of Dr. Dhirendra Katti from the Department of Biological Sciences and Bioengineering (BSBE) at IIT Kanpur. I have completed my M.tech in Biotechnology with specialization in Medical and Nano Biotechnology from IIT Mandi, Himachal Pradesh in June 2021. It was during my masters I realised that I have research interests in disease biology, and nano-bio interfaces hence I took up drug delivery systems as my potential research area.

My Motivation:

I would love to quote few lines by the scientist Albert Einstein that has till date helped me in all aspects of life: “

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.”
