I am a Medical graduate from Delhi University who has specialised in Computational Biology from Jawaharlal Nehru University. I have a couple of years of experience in the industry. (Mascon and Infosys) and some NGO voluntary work experience (Grassroot CART). I got fed up with the corporate work and started exploring the academia. I had the privilege of visiting Institute of Mathematical Sciences in August, 2004 (thanks to Prof. Gautam Menon). Later I moved to Indian Statistical Institute where I worked on some pattern recognition techniques with Prof. Nikhil R. Pal. In Fall 2005 I joined University of Missouri - Kansas City 's doctoral program in computer sciences under the guidance of Prof. Dinakar. I came back to India and had the privilege of working with Prof. Rakesh Bhatnagar at Jawaharlal Nehru University , Prof. Nirupama Bhatnagar at International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology and Dimagi. I am currently pursuing research in genomie sequencing under Prof. Inge Jonassen at Informatics department of University of Bergen while working at Proteomics and Metabolomics core facility of Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim.
