Currently, I am a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant at ISMB, joint institute between UCL & Birkbeck. At ISMB, I work on solving 3D atomic structures of Type-IV Secretion Systems in bacteria, which they use for horizontal transfer of genes, a casual reason for acquired antibiotic resistance. Alongside i am freelancing with Innovation Forum (UCL branch) in the capacity of Business Development Associate.

I have a PhD in Biology (University of Geneva, 2018). My thesis is aimed at deciphering mechanistic details of how TOR signalling pathway maintains cell surface area homeostasis in response to varied mechanical/biochemical stimuli. Although a scientist by training, coming from a business family, I was always drawn to entrepreneurship. While helping Startups pitch at MassChallenge (Switzerland, 2016) finals, I realised my heart lies in transforming disruptive science & technologies into commercially viable products. Additional experiences in varied administrative & operational roles in graduate school brought me close to business communities both locally & internationally.

Life-sciences is my niche area. I firmly believe that advancements in this field have direct impact on health-care sector and likely enable better patient outcomes. My interest in translating science into business brought me to Bioexpert network.
