I joined the laboratory of Prof. Dario Alessi as Postdoctoral researcher in March 2017. I am utilizing biochemical and high resolution mass spectrometry to dissect the LRRK2 mediated signaling in Parkinson’s disease.
I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Institute of Bioinformatics, Bangalore, India. I also spent four years during my Ph.D. in the laboratories of Prof. Akhilesh Pandey and Prof. Richard Huganir at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, USA. I used SILAC mouse model to study protein turnover in synaptosomes using high resolution mass spectrometry. I have applied Fourier transform mass spectrometry for annotating genomes of several species including human. I have applied quantitative phosphoproteomics approaches, SILAC, TMT and label free methods for studying cancer signalling
