Background and activities

Host-pathogen interactions, Small Intestine epithelium, Colon, Goblet cells, Confocal microscopy.

Gastrointestinal disorders always remain one of the major health concerns worldwide. Intestinal inflammation can be triggered by various stimuli, foreign pathogens, and dietary components. My first Postdoc project was based on studying the role of the epigenetic enzyme LSD1 in gut inflammation caused by different pathogens. 

My research career: I started my research career in 2011 during my Master's degree in Biotechnology at the Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Allied Sciences (INMAS-DRDO), New Delhi. Then, I started my Ph.D. program in 2012 and completed it in 2018 at CSIR-CDRI, Lucknow, India. In Summers 2018, I came to Trondheim to join my first postdoc position at Menno Oudhoff's lab, CEMIR, NTNU Norway.
