After completing my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Agriculture in India, I went to UK to pursue my PhD in crop genetics from the University of Nottingham, UK where I established my foundations of molecular biology. The advent of next-generation sequencing has got me interested in the field of Bioinformatics and so I joined as a Postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Julin Maloof’s lab at the University of California, Davis where I developed genomic resources for Brassica rapa. Later, to apply my computational skills full-time, I joined CyVerse as a Science Analyst where I developed novel computational processes that let researchers integrate tools and algorithms into CyVerse’s computational infrastructure.
I have a deep background in Genomics and Bioinformatics with a specialization in applying predictive analytics across a varied set of biological problems. I am currently a Bioinformatics Data Scientist at Greenlight Biosciences working on building machine learning models, data-driven insights and computational capabilities that will drive Greenlight’s data-based value creation.
