I hold a Ph.D degree in Molecular Biophysics from Indian Institute of Science and currently working at same place as a research associate. I currently live in Bangalore and come from a middle class, nuclear family background with liberal values. I am dead against dowry and believe it to be one of the biggest curse of our society. I am a simple person who believe in value driven life. I I do things that make my life more meaningful both at personal and professional front. I keep myself happy and love to see people around me happy. I love to explore new things and that's why chose research as my profession. I love traveling as it exposes me to new place, people, culture and also helps to unwind me. I read variety of books that includes fictional, spiritual, historical, biographies etc. To keep myself physically fit and my mind stress free, I do running, swimming, yoga and martial arts. I find greatest happiness when I do something for others. So, in my spare time I work for social cause. I am associated with few NGO that works for youth development and education.
