Neurobiology and genetics are my two favorite scientific subjects, and my goal at WPI is to help students discover for themselves how exciting it is to work in these areas. In both the classroom and the research lab, I really enjoy helping students to learn how to ask important questions, design experiments, and interpret data to increase our understanding of the nervous system.

It has been my lifelong dream to become a professor in the field of Biology.  Being a faculty member provides a great opportunity to teach and interact with students. Students by nature are highly inquisitive and motivated, and as teachers, we have the responsibility to guide our students to explore and think in new ways. I believe that teaching is a two-way interaction between teachers and students. I come from India and my parents, both of whom were teachers, taught me to strive for excellence in my scholarly pursuits. More Info.
