Biography

Educational History

Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, India, 2001.

M.S. in Biochemistry, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, India, 1996.

B.S. Biology and Minor in Chemistry S.D. College, Panipat, India, 1993.

Research Interests

My research focuses on regulatory mechanisms of adenylyl cyclase (a family of enzymes that catalyzes the formation of 3',5'-cyclic AMP, the second messenger).
