I am currently a Postdoctoral Research fellow at Schrodinger, Inc. I am interested in developing computational approaches to predict liabilities (e.g. aggregation, solubility, viscosity, stability, etc.) in protein-based therapeutics. Previously, I worked as a summer intern at the Antibody Engineering Department at Genentech, South San Francisco during the summer of 2015.

I obtained my PhD in the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology program at Iowa State University, working under the supervision of Dr. Robert L. Jernigan and Dr. Drena Dobbs. I worked on utilizing the wealth of information in structure databases (PDB) to construct knowledge-based free energy functions for proteins and also to understand how protein dynamics and conformational changes help them perform various functions in the cell.

I obtained an Integrated MSc (Hons.) in Biological Sciences and BE (Hons.) in Computer Science from BITS, Pilani, India and worked as a trainee for a year at the Sowdhamini Lab at National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), TIFR, Bangalore before joining the Jernigan Lab at Iowa State for my graduate studies.
