Biographic Sketch:
I obtained masters degree in Zoology from Visva-Bharati University, West Bengal, and a doctoral degree (PhD) in Cancer Genetics from Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani India. I have been serving at the Central University of Tamil Nadu since May 2013, prior to this I was working as a Post-Doctoral fellow at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, NY, USA from 1st May 2010 to April 2013 in the areas of cancer genomics. My specializations include environmental and industrial metagenomics, cancer genomics, and metagenomics. About 16 years of research experience, so far been involved in over three research and consultancy projects in various capacities as principal investigator, and co-principal investigator. Currently supervising 04 students for Ph.D. in Life Sciences Disciplines of Dept. of Life Sciences, Central University of Tamil Nadu. One student was awarded the Ph.D. degree. Thirteen IMSc students' Project theses were supervised.

Research Highlights :

My special interest is to carry out to develop non-invasive biomarkers  for cancer. My future plans are to continue on  non-invasive biomarkers development, microbial diversity, biofilm formation, anti-microbial resistance gene and strain profile in  polluted environment that are likely to bring changes in policy that have an impact in reducing health burden of my Country and entire world.
