BIOGRAPHY:

I have a strong interest towards characterizing mechanisms behind pathogenicity of bacterial Infections and host parasite interactions. I have gained extensive training and working experience in the area.Presently as a postdoctoral fellow, I am working on the immune regulation of pneumonic sepsis caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae in mouse model. The focus of my work is on characterization of the molecular mechanisms by which C-type lectin receptors Clec4d and Clec4e play a protective role in pulmonary infection induced sepsis and disease outcome. We are also extensively working on the mechanisms of formation of neutrophil extracellular traps (Nets) in response to various stimuli and its role in regulation of sepsis.
