  • Areas:  Plasmonics-SPCE, Nanomaterials synthesis, Bioprocessing, Biostatistics, and Bio-Medical Research.
  • Worked as Research Associate (from December, 2017 to August, 2020) on a biomedical research project titled - “ANIRVID: Development of a cellphone based point-of-care device to quantify biomarkers for perinatal depression in women during pregnancy and after delivery” funded by TATA Trusts in the STAR Laboratory, Central Research Instruments Facility (Department of Chemistry, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, Puttaparthi, Andhra Pradesh-515134) India.
  • Played an active role in the development of Microbial Bioprocessing Laboratory and Plasmonic laboratory in the department.
  • Have experienced in the isolation and culturing of microbes and extraction of cellulolytic enzymes from them and in performing ELISA for different biomarkers.
  • As part of Doctoral research, M.Phil and M.Sc work, for the first time the use of endophytic fungus isolated from Aegle marmelos for enhanced cellulolytic enzymes production from groundnut shell as substrate. Observed that Trichoderma harzianum as an endophytic fungus having maximum radial growth rate. A systematic comparison of the endophytic fungus with Aspergillus oryzae, under solid state fermentation and submerged fermentation conditions was performed and enhanced cellulase production was. A comprehensive understanding of the systemic breakdown in the structural integrity of the biomass has been achieved using a synergy of enzyme assay protocols, spectral and thermal based techniques. The use of endophytic fungi in solid state fermentation systems in our study lays the basis for the production of other industrially important enzymes. The present study opens the door for the synergistic use of endophytic and epiphytic fungi for the production of cellulolytic enzyme.
  • As part of Doctoral research, worked on development of plasmonics technology and microbes-fortified biosorbents based analytical methods for efficient integrated bioprocessing.
  • As part of Doctoral research, extracted several proteins from different plant sources [Triticum aestivum, Aegle marmelos, Ricinus communis, Jatropha curcas and Simarouba glauca] followed by evaluation of their optical properties and simulations to rationalize observed surface plasmon resonance.
  • Experience in synthesis of silver nanoparticles through chemical and biological methods and evaluation of their application on Surface Plasmon-Coupled Emission (SPCE) platform for sensing drug molecules like Dopamine and Doxycycline.
  • Design of nanometer thin polymer films for in-situ generation of silver nanoparticles.
  • Experience in writing journal articles and in writing proposals to funding agencies.
  • Experienced in handling many instruments including AFM, DSC-TGA, FT-IR, SEM, UV-Vis,
  • Photoluminescence, Raman Spectroscopy, SPCE, Cold Centrifuge, Electro-Spinning, Laser-Engraver, HPLC, Biosafety cabinets, Roche Cobas e411 and other necessary analytical tools.
  • Biostatistics for biomedical research.
