Currently I am working as Assistant Professor in Department of Chemistry, Aditi College, University of Delhi, Bawana, Delhi.
Research: My recent work was on the anti-kinase molecules synthesis, anti-cancer drug development and for synthesis of nucleoside based Anti-HIV drugs. The emphasis of the current project is to design and synthesis drug molecules with improved delivery of the active molecules and thus increased anti-viral effect.
Previous research study was on the biomedical applications of Carbon nanotubes. The project was funded by Department of Science Technology, New Delhi (under NanoScience and Nanotechnology Initiative) and work was carried out at Organic Chemistry Department, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and Jawaharlal Nehru Center for Advanced Scientific Research, Bangalore.
My thesis work was on synthesis of molecules for the radioimmunodiagnosis of cancer. Beside that I also worked on the catalysts for oxidation of organic substrates.
I am fond of working on challenging and worthy projects. I am passionate about my research. I am concerned about the status of Science in India and work for development of resources for science community.
I am an easy goining fellow.. helping nature, humorous.
