I am a PhD student in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, working under the supervision of Dr. Robert L. Jernigan and Dr. Drena Dobbs at Iowa State University. My primary research interests include mining the existing database of structures (PDB) to understand structure-dynamics-function relationships in proteins and their interactions with other biomolecules such as lipids and RNA.

I obtained an Integrated MSc (Hons.) in Biological Sciences with a dual degree 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 PhD studies.
