I completed my MSc in medical biotechnology from AIIMS, New delhi, India during which I studied the host-pathogen interaction in infections caused by Mycobacterium. I obtained my PhD in 2016 from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi India. My PhD mainly focussed on understanding the immunobiology of a parasitic disease called leishmaniasis with an aim to develop novel therapeutics against the parasite. Before joining Prof. Rabbitts group I was working as a postdoc in Dr Matthew Reeves and Prof Greg Towers group at University college London. Here I was interested in identifying and characterizing the antiviral activity of novel small molecule inhibitors targeting the host protein Cyclophillin-A. I joined Prof Rabbitts group in October 2017 and my work here will focus on utilizing and developing methodologies to target protein-protein interactions using antibody fragments.
