My work involves

Creating new computational methods to analyze biological data such as DNA, RNA and Protein data related to important health problems such as malaria.  I also enjoy sharing my skills by teaching at the University.

MOTIVATION FOR MY WORK :

In my early days as a researcher (after undergraduate), I discovered I had a strong interest in quantitative methods for understanding complex data such as molecular sequences. My work involves learning exciting statistical and computational methods. It is even more fun because my work is very dynamic in nature. My day to day schedule is not that predictable and that is really motivating.

Qualification required for my work:

I would say more than the academic qualifications, the experience is acquired over time is more critical. I think at least a Master’s degree is essential but a PhD is preferable to be able to do the kind of work that I do.

HOBBIES, PASTIMES, LIKES AND DISLIKES

Playing chess, watching football and reading small books are interesting hobbies that I have. I don’t dislike anything.

FAVORITE SUBJECT AT SCHOOL

Mathematics

AMBITION

To run my own research lab and team within the next 5-7 years
