I received a PhD in cellular and molecular biology from the University at Buffalo. I’m interested in role of protein condensates in cellular processes such as transcription and stress granule formation and their aberrant assemblies in disease states. Go bills !!

Postdoctoral Associate

I received a PhD in Physics from SUNY at Buffalo in Priya Banerjee’s Lab. My work is mostly concerned with measuring the physical properties of protein-nucleic acid condensates using a combination of microscopy, optical tweezers, and microfluidics. These measurements help us understand the physicochemical determinants of protein-nucleic acid condensation.

Postdoctoral Associate

I received a PhD in Physics from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India with my thesis work focused on studying the aggregation kinetics, optical, and electrical properties of intrinsically disordered peptides. In Banerjee lab, I am interested in understanding the physical factors playing decisive role in modulating and tuning the material and transport properties of biomolecular condensates.
