I am pursuing PhD in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology under the supervision of Dr. Robert L. Jernigan at Iowa State University. My primary research interests include understanding the structure-function-dynamics relationship in proteins using coarse-graine models such as elastic network models and molecular dynamics. I obtained an Integrated MSc (Hons.) in Biological Sciences with a dual degree in Computer Science from Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani. I worked as a trainee for a year at Dr. Sowdhamini's Lab at National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), Bangalore.
