Brief Description of Research Interest :
My research interests essentially fall under DNA Damage Response (DDR) and Repair and Erythroid Biology. 
My earlier work has been on platinum based compounds and their mechanism of action in cancer cells. I then moved on to study the role of cell cycle related kinases in DDR and mTOR signaling. Currently, I am working toward understanding the mechanism of mitochondrial regulation during erythropoiesis using mouse models.
