    BioA research individual with more than ten years of extensive research experience in molecular biology techniques ranging from DNA/RNA manipulations, recombinant protein expression, purification, and biochemical characterization of DNA-cutting enzymes, needed for genetic engineering. I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Genetics, Stanford University. I work with Dr. Mike Snyder. My research involves multiplexed-molecular imaging for the precancerous and cancerous colon polyps (Familial adenomatous polyposis) using a cutting-edge technology, Codex. My previous work involved novel gene therapy approaches to cure muscle disorders, particularly Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2A using mouse models, and gene repair studies using modified CRISPR system through plasmid/protein-oligo based transfections, electroporation in human cells, microinjection in frog embryos and analyzing editing efficiencies using flow cytometry. I have a multi-disciplinary background, therefore I have a solid understanding and working knowledge in a broader domain within the biological sciences, be it from animal behavior, ecology, gene regulation, genetic diseases to understanding and designing “molecular switches” within DNA-cutting proteins, such as meganucleases, and CRISPR/Cas9 for genome engineering. I have strong communication skills, presented my research in various conferences and published heavily in the field of DNA-cutting enzymes and their use as genome editing tools. I have a proven ability to manage challenging research objectives, collaborated with other research teams, and delivered results effectively. I always welcome new ideas and interact with people to learn any new skills and experiences. I have also supervised several undergraduate project students, summer students and junior graduate students. My mentorship to the lab colleagues have been very productive. While I am not working, I enjoy photography.
