I am a toxicologist currently working to understand the role of senescence and mitochondrial dysfunction in smoke-related disorders. My previous training has been in epigenetic regulation of inflammation in COPD. I am passionate about my work and constantly trying to conduct meaningful research that has an immediate translational value. Have started as an engineer and so have worn various caps in the course of my career so far. Currently, I am looking to get mentoring with regards to my future career and trying to answer the serious question of 'Industry or Academia' for myself. Outside work I love to indulge myself in good food, music, travel and books.
