I joined the lab of Dr. Miratul Muqit as a postdoc in October 2020. Here, I aim to understand the mechanism of PINK1 kinase activation and regulation. During my post-graduation project, I contributed in the analysis of stress-responsive genes of rice (Oryza sativa) at NIPGR, Delhi. I pursued my Ph.D. under the guidance of Dr. Arvind Sahu and Co-guidance of Dr. Shekahr C. Mande at NCCS, Pune. During my PhD, I annotated the complement regulatory RCA proteins comprising exclusively of CCP domains and differentiated them with other CCP domains-containing proteins which are not associated with complement regulation. Another project I was indulged in was to investigate the structure-functional relationships of two complement regulatory proteins – DAF (CD55) and MCP (CD46).
