About Myself :
I was born in a place called Nidamanuru in Prakasam District of
Andhra Pradesh, India to Mohana Rao and Rajeswari. I spent most of my
early childhood in North Eastern India, in Assam, Meghalaya and Mizoram
where my father was posted during his time with the Government of India.
(Here is the latest picture of my mother and dad) I then moved to
Hyderabad and then to Bangalore. I finished my
schooling from Vidya mandir in Bangalore and then went to
Christ College for my pre-university
studies. I completed Bachelors (Honours) in Chemistry and the Masters
in Chemistry at the Sri Satya Sai Institute of Higher learning.
(I consider my education at Sri Satya Sai Institute of
Higher Learning as the most important part of my life.) I then went to Indian Institute
for my Masters in Engineering. I worked at
IGIB (Institute of Genomics and Integrative
in New Delhi as a Project Associate with Dr. S. Ramachandran. I finished my PhD
with Magna cum Laude
University of Heidelberg.
I briefly worked as a Max Planck Fellow at the
Max Planck Institute for Medical Research
Dr. Stefan Fischer and
Prof. Kenneth C. Holmes. I am currently working at Novartis AG in Basel Switzerland.
