Postdoctoral Research Associate, Faculty of Science



I studied M.S.(pharm) in medicinal chemistry at the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER), India. My master's project focus was the development of novel transition metal-catalyzed reaction methodologies for the synthesis of bioactive heterocyclic compounds under the guidance of Prof. Indu Bhusan Deb at CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Biology. Prior to that, I completed my undergraduate degree in pharmacy (BPharm) from Kerala University of Health Sciences (KUHS).

In 2018, I moved to Germany for my PhD studies with Prof. Andrey Antonchick and Prof. Herbert Waldmann at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology (MPI-Dortmund) and Technical University of Dortmund. My research projects in graduate school were in the interface of organic chemistry and chemical biology.

Currently, I am working with Prof. Shailesh Mistry at the School of Pharmacy, University of Nottingham as a Postdoctoral Research Associate on a GPCR Medicinal Chemistry project.
