Post-doctoral Research Fellow: September 2015- Till date The Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology, The University of Texas at Austin, Texas, USA My present research is in the field of Plant molecular biology, with particular focus on unraveling molecular mechanisms of light signaling in the model plant Arabidopsis. I use combinations of genetics, biochemistry and molecular techniques to discover the unique functions of genes/proteins that affect the growth and development of plants, in response to surrounding environment. In addition to research activities, I am actively involved in training microbiological and molecular techniques to undergraduates and graduate students. Moreover, I perform the duties of a lab manager, managing the day-to-day lab activities.
Research Interest

My present research is in the field of Plant molecular biology. I have taught laboratory courses and occasionally lecture classes for “Principles of Developmental
Biology” and “Plant Physiology” As a research assistant I worked on aspects related to bone regeneration, remodeling and repair using invivo mouse models and in vitro animal cell cultures.
