Personal Facts/Hobbies: I am from India, but I am raised in different parts of India, as well as in Muscat and Dubai. I’m currently working on my research thesis focused on identifying potential signaling pathways and targeted genes involved in the renewal of adipocyte progenitor cells during browning of white adipose tissue. In my free time, I like to explore different neighborhoods in and around the city, listen to music and always down for something fun and new. My aim as gSOC mentor is to be someone you can confide in and be good friends!
