Post-doctoral Studies (Biotechnology-Drug development) from University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida, USA.
PhD (Bio-Medical Engineering) from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB), Powai campus. Title of thesis: Nanoengineered Alginate Microspheres Towards an Optical Urea Biosensor
DBT-JRF qualified (2005)
M.Sc. (Biotechnology) from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi.

Research Experience:
Pursued postdoctoral studies on project entitled ‘Efficacy of novel drugs/compounds as potential anti-cancer drugs’. The objectives of the work were to synthesize and characterize the nanoparticles encapsulated with drugs and to investigate the cytotoxic effects of these nanoparticles in the desired cancer cell-lines. Cellular uptake and internalization of these nano-formulations was studied using flow cytometer and fluorescence microscopy. My PhD and postdoctoral research have fetched me with 11 international publications.

Work Experience:
Worked as an Assistant Professor in Department of Bio-Medical Engineering at MGM’s College of Engineering & Technology from July 2012 to December 2015.
Worked as a Research Scientist at Transgenex Nanobiotech Inc., Tampa, Florida, USA from August 2016 to December 2017.
