I am a researcher by profession having more than six years of research experience in the field of plant molecular genetics and genomics, and had just submitted my doctoral thesis recently (August 2019). I have been authored in seven publications published in peer reviewed journals, such as International journal of molecular sciences (MDPI), Nature scientific reports and Frontiers in plant sciences.

I am being practical and sceptical to identify the best course of action. So, I never put my trust into anything but my own intellect. This made me to have more belief in science as science is vastly more stimulating to imagination. I am a Biotechnologist with some essence of Bioinformatics experience, would love to be called as researcher who would do anything to find the answers of unanswered questions in the field of SCIENCE. I do also have an experience in complete transcriptomics and genomics sequencing analysis, right from the sample library preparation, up to the bioinformatics analysis using both parametric and non-parametric statistical tests. Additionally, I am also familiar with some of the coding languages such as R, Perl, Python, C and C++ which are commonly used in large data analysis during genomics/transcriptomics analysis.
