Genetics

Louisiana State University

Hello! I am a PhD student at Louisiana State University, where I study genetic basis of adaptation in marine invertebrates. In other words, my day is divided between chasing tiny copepods with my pasture pipette and crying over my code. I’m broadly interested in genetics, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, and genomics. Apart from writing articles, I also enjoy organizing sci-comm workshops and demonstrations for general audience, in both English and Indian languages.
