About

Currently seeking Scientific positions in academic/non-profit organizations or industry. I have 5 degrees in 4 distinct disciplines, multiple publications, gene, protein & peptide microarray data analysis experience & molecular biology expertize for the past 8 years. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Microbiology from the University of Mumbai in India. During my bachelors degree I simultaneously completed 2 diplomas in computer programming with the intention of pursuing a career in the field of Bioinformatics. My bachelors in Microbiology piqued my interest in medical diagnostics applied to diagnose infections caused by the microorganisms I was studying at the time. This led me to obtaining a Post Graduate Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology (PGDMLT). As part of the culminating experience of this diploma I had the fine opportunity of interning and later working at a Harvard Medical International (HMI) affiliate hospital in India where I learnt first-hand how differential diagnosis is applied in the field of infectious disease. Pursing my aspirations for higher education, I came to Arizona State University to complete my Professional Science Masters (PSM) in Computational Biosciences. My mentors at the time encouraged enrolling into the Biological Design PhD program during which time at the Center for Innovation in Medicine in Biodesign, I learnt how diagnostics are made for infectious diseases. From having observed both perspectives (end-users and manufacturing) of medical diagnostics I hope to continue to apply my expertise to create novel forms of diagnostic genomic or proteomic interventions enabling earlier resolution of disease.
