What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your work or line of research
With an early education in India, I pursued my PhD at Purdue and Postdoctoral training at UCSF. I am trained as a membrane protein biologist with focused training in ABC transporters and specialized skills in protein sciences. I look forward to understanding how these membrane proteins work, how do they interact with other downstream proteins and how these interactions play a role in diseases.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
I am very new to the preprint community, so I am looking forward to learning about how preprints work.
