Research Activities

My research work is principally focused on events central to human infection and immunity. Specifically, I work on structural & functional studies on viral and bacterial proteins involved in infection and challenging human immunity. This has important implications for understanding the disease progression in human and provide hints towards its regulation. My research key technical areas include X-ray crystallography, Cryo-EM, Molecular dynamics, protein biochemistry and biophysical techniques (SPR, ITC, MALS, SAXS, MST, TPM). I am also expertise in DNA/RNA-Protein interactions and dissecting its functional importance with its physiological role. Specifically in the regulation of viral RNA replication and control of translation in human.
