Curriculum Vitae


I obtained PhD in Bioinformatics from University College Dublin, Ireland. It is the largest university in Ireland. During PhD, I worked at Complex & Adaptive Systems Laboratory (CASL) and Conway Institute of Biomolecular & Biomedical Research. I have a Bachelor of Technology degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. Its the best institute for Engineering and Technology in India and also one of the best in Asia. According to CBS 60 minutes - "Put Harvard, MIT and Princeton together, and you begin to get an idea of the status of IIT in India". [More]


After graduation I, along with some of my colleagues, was invited by Prof. Sameer K. Brahmachari, the director of Institute of Genomics & Integrative Biology, Delhi, India (currently Director General of CSIR) to do a few projects in Bioinformatics. I liked Bioinformatics very much and thats how my career in Bioinformatics started. I got an offer from Evolutionary Genomics Group at University of Miguel Hernández, Alicante Spain in 2003. After PhD, I came to India and joined Genome Life Sciences in Chennai, an R&D division of Genome International Corporation. Recently, I started working in a leading biotechnology company in Bangalore, India. [More]


I have a few publications and it is quite difficult to get publications in an industry setting. I would surely like to have more publications. I have acted as a reviewer for a few articles in Bioinformatics journal. Some of my favorite journals are Bioinformatics, Biomed Central journals, Genome Research and PLoS journals. I have also co-authored a chapter in a book "Evolutionary Biology of Bacterial and Fungal Pathogens" published by ASM Press in October 2007. [More]


I got a chance to do multiple projects in Evolutionary Genomics Group, Alicante, Spain but most of the projects were related to Comparative Genomics or Genome Evolution. I developed a few databases such as Micro-Mar: a database for dynamic representation of marine microbial community. At UCD I worked on evolution of short linear motifs and intrinsic disorder in viral proteins. In the last couple of years, I have worked on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) projects. [More]
