I joined Professor Monica Alterskjær Sundset's group in June 2021 to pursue my Doctorate in gut microbial ecology. I was awarded MSc in Botany from MG University, India and molecular biology specializing in gut microbiology from the University of Skövde (Høgskolen i Skövde) and also completed advanced-level courses in functional genomics and bioinformatics from the University of Gothenburg. In addition, I worked as a research associate (bioinformatician) at Angelettilab. So far, I have contributed to gut microbiota and immunology research that made me interested in investigating the role of the oral and gut microbiome in Atherosclerosis. My PhD develops under SECURE - Novel Marine Resources for Food Security and Food Safety (Strategic funding by UiT - The Arctic University of Norway).
