I'm a


I am a PhD student at the prestigious Indian Institute of Science (IISc), specializing in the field of Bioengineering. My research focuses on Mechanobiology, with a specific interest in understanding the initiation of cancer and the mechanics behind it. I completed my B.Tech in Biotechnology from , GGSIP University, which laid the foundation for my current academic pursuits. Working in the field of cancer research has always been my passion, and I am committed to contributing to the advancement of cancer research.
Born and brought up in Delhi, I am a curious and driven individual who is passionate about exploring the intersection of biology and engineering. In my free time, I enjoy reading books, exploring new places, and spending time with friends and family.

PhD student

At IISc, I am part of Epithelial Mechano-Biology Research Group, lead by Dr. Medhavi Vishwakarma. We are an interdisciplinary group of individuals from diverse branches of Science and Engineering.
I am working on Oral Cancer initiation where my primary aim is to develop a three dimension model of healthy as well as cancerous oral mucosa to understand the biophysical and biochemical rational behind oral cancer initiation
