A Bit About Me

My major research interest is understanding the molecular mechanisms underpinning the plant acquired stress response(s). Towards this, I am trying to correlate the key transcriptional, post-transcriptional, and epigenetic pathways to get a deeper understanding of the stress memory mechanism in plants. Identifying the vital regulatory modules could aid in engineering abiotic stress-resilient crops. My research is supported by IISER Tirupati. I am currently working at Penn State University, USA as a Fulbright Doctoral Fellow.

In my free time, you can find me playing football, watching YouTube, reading books or mostly sleeping. I am also interested in cooking and exploring new places.
