Informatics and bioinformatics support




I’m a Bioinformatics researcher, within the “Gut Microbes and Health” Institute Strategic Programme (GMH), providing training and support in metagenomics and microbiome studies. My core-responsibilities include to support GMH studies, including two large longitudinal studies on gut microbiome by applying bioinformatics tools/techniques to analyse the data.

I have expertise in analysing whole-genome sequencing (WGS) data mainly from bacteria.

In 2017, I joined Robert Koch Institute, Berlin, Germany, as a doctoral student and did my research work on identifying the host-associated genomic determinants of E. coli, by applying a microbial genome-wide association study (GWAS). Currently my doctoral dissertation is under review.

In 2015, I finished my master’s in bioinformatics from University of Hyderabad, India, followed by working as a Bioinformatics junior research fellow for two years in a lab focused on bacterial pathogens and genome based epidemiological studies. I was mainly working with WGS data and doing comparative genomics studies. In addition to that I also have a bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology.
