Mentor: Dr. Thomas Michel

I am currently serving as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow conducting research under Prof. Thomas Michel at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA. I am passionately focused on redox metabolism and oxidant-modulated signaling in both cell and animal models. In 2014, I received a master’s degree in molecular genetics and protein engineering from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) in Mohali, India. In 2019, I received my Ph.D. in Redox Biochemistry from IISER Mohali under Prof. Anand Kumar Bachhawat, where I explored two different aspects of altered glutathione metabolism in two different model systems, zebrafish, and the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Currently, I am studying the signal transduction in the cardiovascular and neurovascular system in health and disease with a focus on using chemogenetic approaches to dissect the role of cellular oxidants in neurodegenerative diseases.

My specialties include basic and pre-clinical research; neurovascular physiology; redox, calcium, and nitric oxide signaling; sulfur metabolism; animal models; cell culture; molecular biology; molecular genetics; and biochemistry.
