podstdoctoral scholar, computational biologist
goals include realizing the full potential of
computational biology, and eventually, contributing towards
understanding metabolism of microorganisms.
With these goals in mind, my research interests include:
synthetic biology and systems biology of cellular metabolism,
production of biofuels using cyanobacteria or algae,
mathematical models of evolution, and
comparative analysis of organisms within/across different species.
Being a squash player since I was 12, I got a chance to apply some of my knowledge of squash at racquetball, a sport more known in the United States. Apart from my research and sports, I also enjoy making oil paintings, pencil sketches, calligraphy, and writing abstract blogs.
Being a design fanatic, I admire designs, natural or man-made. These include everything from landscapes to flocking and concrete structures to websites.
