Role of LSD1 in CRPC progression
Study of epigenetic plasticity in CRPC via NGS modalities
Smith Family Postdoctoral Scholar
Teacher who has altered my life: My high school biology teacher instilled my interest in biological science and my mentor during my post-graduation introduced me to research by asking curious questions on simple day-to-day life events.
In my time off, I enjoy: Experimenting with spicy dishes, exploring classical Tamil literature and mythology.
What profession, other than your own, would you enjoy? I would enjoy being an archeologist.
