I completed my BSc (triple majors) in Biotechnology, Chemistry and Botany and MSc in Biotechnology from CHRIST (Deemed to be University), Bangalore. During my BSc, I have done an internship at Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology where I helped the lab technicians in assessing the oncological blood samples. My research project in Biotechnology and Chemistry was “Screening and Optimization of PHB from Soil Bacteria” and “Biodegradable Plastics from Limonene and Starch: A Way towards a Safe Future” respectively. In MSc, my research project was, “Extraction and Purification of Bromelain from Pineapple Fruit and Stem and a Comparative Analysis of its Anti-Browning effect and Meat Tenderization” and I have also done an internship on Bioanalytical Tools from CHRIST (Deemed to be University) where I learnt various techniques like GC-MS, HPLC, FTIR spectroscopy etc. At IITB-Monash Research Academy, I will be working on the project- “Production of Functional Biopolymers using Continuous Flow” under the supervision of Dr. Anil Kumar (IITB) and Dr. Neil Cameron (Monash). My hobbies include reading books, playing the piano and listening to music.
