Overview

I am originally from India. I moved to United Kingdom to study MRes in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Glasgow. Upon completion, I started PhD in Medical Sciences at MRC Centre for Medical Mycology, University of Aberdeen under the supervision of Prof. Alistair J.P. Brown. I defended my PhD in February, 2019 and started as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Medical Mycology in April at the University of Exeter. However, I was working in Prof. Alistair Brown’s lab at MRC Centre for Medical Mycology, University of Aberdeen after receiving an honorary Post-doctorate status. I finally moved to Exeter and started my job at the College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter from September, 2019.

My main area of research is focused on Medical Mycology, investigating mechanisms of Candida albicans adaptation to host niches and immune response.
