Current position and address: PhD student in Prof Afshin Samali’s lab at the National University of Ireland, Galway.


Summary of education:

I did Master of pharmacy with specialization in computational chemistry and computer aided (in-silico) drug designing at Nirma University, India.

Why are you doing a PhD:

My primary research interest lies in the field of chemical biology. I would like to develop an in-depth understanding of this field. I want to work on both technology and application oriented research by rational integration of experiments to computations.

A combination of inter-disciplinary academic environment with freedom of thought and expert guidance inspires me to pursue a PhD at NUI.


What are your interests outside the lab?

I like cooking, travelling, playing cricket, listening to music and watching movies.
