    Education:

    B.Sc. Biotechnology, Amrita School of Biotechnology, Kollam.

     

     

    Research Interests:

         My interest lies in deciphering the cell signaling systems of pathogens. Currently, my focus is on dissecting the mechanisms of signal transduction of M. tuberculosis two component systems and their role in microbial physiology and infection. I am also particularly interested in synthetic biology and re-wiring of signaling systems. I use standard biophysical and imaging tools to answer genetic and molecular biological questions regarding TCSs.

    Research summary:

         My research interest lies in deciphering the attributes of the two-component signaling (TCS) network of Mycobacterium tuberculosis enabling the design of stage-specific strategies of intervention. Powered by in-vitro experiments and subsequently backed up by mathematical modeling, the work will be reinforced by in-vivo experiments elucidating the physiological significance of the features of the TCS signaling network.

    Research summary:

         The questions I address majorly deal with the course of infection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in order to better understand its impact on the host system. Studying the trafficking events involved and drawing an index of virulence based on them, furthermore probing in to the micro environment that houses this pathogen in order to find its role in the persistence of infection that is prevalent phenotype that is seen.
