PhD Title: Molecular genetics of mycobacterial lipid biosynthesis and transport

Supervisors: Dr Apoorva Bhatt

Working on lipid biosynthesis and transport of mycobacterial strains


MSc in Medical and Molecular Microbiology
BSc in Biotechnology


I did my bachelor’s in Biotechnology during which I developed interest in Microbiology especially in bacterial genetics and drug resistance. This interest led me into doing Master’s in Medical and Molecular Microbiology at University of Manchester. After Master’s I worked as a Research Assistant at UAE university, UAE for 3 years in the Microbiology and Physiology departments of the university. I worked mainly on resistant strains prevalent in hospitals in UAE.
