Biography

I am a Molecular Pathologist with 15 years of experience. Am quite inquisitive in learning genetic interplay in regulation of our body functions and what regulates genes in return. Besides dwelling into the genetic world. I also like to observe and understand human psychology and behavior and to study their various influential factors like family upbringing and socio-environmental connect. I strongly believe that it’s this holistic approach that would help curing any disease in a more dynamic way. Besides my professional passion, I also love reading on topics such as human psychology, neuroscience, astro and quantum physics. And above all singing and music is my biggest stress buster.

My Mantra

To live a harmonious life, try to understand people from their perspective and be less judgmental
