Research Topic

 I am majorly figuring out the influence of population bottlenecks on the evolution of life-history traits. Also, interested to understand the genetic networks behind Myxococcus sporulation and germination. Another direction of research goes into understanding microbial community assembly in nature.

Bio

Thank you for visiting here by the way!


I am a science enthusiast from let's say high school onwards, yes, a cliche sentence to begin with, and I always wanted to free myself in science and scientific thinking, which is a fact.  


I thought to major in Physics, but later inclinations got me to Life Sciences. Within life sciences, I had visits at other biological disciplines but evolution with microbes  became an un-resistable field to set myself in. 


Hobbies : Scientific writing and reading are something I enjoy the most. Leisure times I like watching movies, wandering in our campus and clicking pictures. 


A consistent announcement : Actively looking for interns to seed new ideas and pace-up the work!!
