About Me:

My primary research interests are in single crystal X-ray crystallography and structure based drug discovery. I have worked as a Lecturer for undergraduate students in JSS College for women’s, Mysore, from 2008-2012. In the year 2012, I was awarded with Research Fellowship in Sciences to Meritorious Students (RFSMS), UGC, New Delhi, Govt. of India. Till date my research work was accomplished with 61 substantial publications at reputed impact International/National journals such as European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, Molecular and Bimolecular Spectroscopy, Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Letters, Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Journal of Molecular Structure, etc. In addition, I have participated and presented more than 25 research papers in many International/National conferences. Since 2014, I am working as Assistant Professor of Physics for Engineering Students at The National Institute of Engineering (NIE), Mysore.
