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.

I did my PhD at Robert Koch Institute, Berlin, Germany (2017-2021). My research work was focused on identifying the host-specific genomic determinants of E. coli, by applying a microbial genome-wide association study (GWAS).

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.
