  • Pedagogy – Innovative Educational Program Designing, Illustrative Biology and MOOCs


Being a microbiologist at heart and in the profession; he wants to explore the intrinsic relationship between the human associated microbes and their genetic, metabolic and responsive capacities. Since the commencement of his PhD he has been dedicated to understanding the gut associated microbial diversity and its impact on health and disease conditions in Indian population. Concentrating on the different ecological aspects, right from the association between the microbes to the host suffering with urological, nutritional and metabolic disorders he envisions to disseminate interspecies interactions through genomic approaches. It is now prime focus to understand him the co-evolution of gut microbiome along with its host evolution stages for the gut-microbes mediated nutritional aspects.
