I am from Cherlopalli, a village in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. I completed my schooling in Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, Lepakshi. Fascinated by the incredible power of tiny living organisms, called bacteria, I studied Microbiology during my Bachelor’s degree at The American College, Madurai. I then did my Master’s in Biotechnology at the University of Western Sydney, Australia. I joined the lab of Domenico Libri at Centre de génétique moléculaire, CNRS, France to understand the mechanism of transcription termination and quality control of RNA using budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model system. Followed by a brief postdoctoral study in the lab of Alain Jacquier at Institut Pasteur, Paris, I joined the lab of Helge Grosshans at FMI, Basel to understand the function of DPPIV family proteases using Caenorhabditis elegans as a model system. I started my independent laboratory in August 2022 to gain a deeper understanding of the function/s of DPPIV proteases.
