I received my B.Tech. in Biotechnology from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi in 2004. I did my Ph.D. in the laboratory of Prof. Hemalatha Balaram at JNCASR, Bengaluru, where I worked out the detailed kinetic and catalytic mechanism of a purine salvage pathway enzyme known as adenylosuccinate lyase along with deducing the metabolic fate of fumarate during the intraerythrocytic stages of Plasmodium falciparum (causative agent of malaria). Following my Ph.D. in 2010, I joined the laboratory of Dr. Alexander Aulehla at EMBL Heidelberg as an EMBL interdisciplinary post-doctoral (EIPOD) fellow where we discovered how glycolysis was organized as a gradient along the mouse embryonic presomitic mesoderm. In 2014, I joined Dr. Jurre Kamphorst’s lab at the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute where I integrated advanced mass spectrometry-based approaches to understand metabolic fluxes in hypoxic cancer cells focusing on acetate and lipid metabolism. In the summer of 2020, I established my lab at the Department of Biological Sciences, IISER Berhampur and my research continues to focus on the cross-talk of metabolism with signaling pathways and gene expression.
