Research Interests

I have a PhD in Biosciences (Computational Biology) from The University of Nottingham, UK and I hold a Master of Science degree in Bioinformatics from Barathidasan University, India.

Currently I am working here on a couple of projects as a Bioinformatician.  My core research interest is studying plant pathogens and their relationships with hosts at molecular-level using a variety of computational methods.
