I am working as a computational biologist at the ICMR-National Institute of Research In Tribal Health investigating evolution and antimicrobial resistance development in Mycobacterium using next generation sequencing. Using whole genome sequencing datasets of the bacteria my goal is to understand the association between genomic variants and drug resistance phenotypes and develop approaches to predict the AMR phenotypes.

I have a great interest in the application of machine learning in genomic data and biomedical data science to predict and extract insightful information from large scale datasets.

Apart from research, I am a member of eLife Community Ambassadors and ASAPbio Ambassadors programme promoting open science, preprints, reproducibility in research and contribute to computational biology communities.
