I am a doctoral candidate at Clemson University, Center for Human Genetics (CHG), in the Department of Genetics and Biochemistry. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Zoology with Honors from the University of Calcutta, India, and a master’s degree in biotechnology from Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore, India.

Under the guidance of Dr. Lela Lackey, my primary research area revolves around investigating the intricate connections between mRNA molecules and various diseases, with a specific focus on elucidating their structure-function relationships. To achieve comprehensive insights into these complex associations and understand their implications in disease mechanisms, I employ a combination of wet lab experiments and bioinformatic tools.

Previously, I worked on long non-coding RNA and their roles in various disorders under the guidance of Dr. Andrei Alexandrov. 


I am currently involved in 2 projects:

  1. Unraveling the Folding Landscape of DDX23 Mutations in Patients: Implications for RNA Structure and Function
  2. Exploring Alternative Polyadenylation of DNMT3A: Implications and Comparative Analysis
