  • M.Tech. Biotechnology, University of Pune
  • Currently a fifth year student in the MGG PhD program

During my Masters, I conducted research in different topics including microbiology, neurobiology and biochemistry and was fascinated by the diversity of the biological research. With the M.Sc. and M.Tech. degrees under my belt, I believe that a Ph.D. degree is the next step in my scientific career. Hence, I chose to apply to the multidisciplinary research programme offered by CMMG. The comprehensive techniques and skills I acquire as a part of this programme will help me achieve my goal of becoming a successful researcher.
