A Bit About Me
My interest in biological science dates back to my high school days wherein I discovered a natural fascination for the mechanisms that drive lifeforms on this planet. During my bachelor's in Botany, this interest grew stronger, and eventually towards the end of my master's I was truly intrigued by the process of 'stress memory' in plants which triggered my curiosity further. The very idea of plants being able to 'sense' their environment, get 'primed' upon exposure to stress signals, and generate an enhanced 'memorized' response when faced with another stressful event in the future, seems highly exciting to me.
I hope during my Ph.D. I will be able to investigate this signaling network and get to share interesting insights from the project.
During my free time, I like to spend time in nature, listen to audiobooks/podcasts, read books, and have floral tea. I also thoroughly enjoy portrait photography, editing, and abstract painting.
