Research Experience

I am a medical microbiologist and an enthusiastic student always trying to learn new things at every opportunity from every one I am working with. In my academic and research career spanning nearly 7 years before joining the present post, I had worked as a Junior Resident cum Tutor at Father Muller Medical College and Hospital, Mangalore followed by Senior Residency at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh and then working in the capacity of Assistant Professor at Christian Medical College, Ludhiana and Gian Sagar Medical College, Patiala, during which I had worked and contributed in the field of infectious diseases which include works on Bacteriology (Cholera, Shigellosis, Antimicrobial Resistance, Tuberculosis); Virology (HIV, Dengue); Parasitology (Toxocariasis) and Mycology (Chrysosporium sp.). I am good at finding solutions and ever willing to work with anyone for the betterment of science and most importantly mankind.

Research Interests

Since joining the present post, my role will be that of a public health microbiologist. My research interest will be mainly focussing on basic along with clinical research on bacterial diarrhoeal illnesses.
