My programme relocated to IISER-Tirupati from TIFR-Mumbai very recently. I continue my research efforts at IISER-Tirupati that are mechanism-centric and are mainly directed towards two questions of cellular-molecular biology.
How do chromosomes maintain quasi-stability against a variety of cellular stresses? We probe signaling mechanisms that lead to such genome-homeostasis in mammalian cells.
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, single celled plant organism exhibits tight coordination between chloroplast and mitochondrial compartments of a cell. How is this tuned under changing cellular states? We hope to glean the dynamic signaling cross-talk between these organelles which is unique to plant world and hope to extract new Biology from it.
