I am a graduate student from University of Massachusetts, Boston with a Masters degree in Applied physics with a major in Cancer Biophysics. I have gained extensive knowledge in the field of cell-biology and biophysics while working as a research assistant in Umass, Boston. Additionally, two years of experience as a lab tutor with a scholarship in the same institution has played a major role in my student career. The most exciting and ambitious stage of my early career graph was to be chosen as a representative of India in an International bio-conference, arranged by University of Colorado, Boulder which eventually turned out to be the best exposure as a graduate student.
1. Smartphone Imaging- Measurement of cancer tumor area (Pre-PDT & Post-PDT).
2. Designing MATLAB code to measure the cancer infected area.
3. Measuring, monitoring and targeting mechanically sensitive behavior in 3D tumor models.
The main focus of this job was to carry out useful experiments that gives an insight of the survivor of Pancreatic cancer cells even after an enough dose of Photodynamic therapy (PDT). Moreover, I have gained useful training in growing cell cultures, their treatments, incubation, passaging the cells and related cell-biology along with the theoretical knowledge in the same field.
Thesis & research papers:
1. Development of treatment strategies using PDT in cancer biophysics &
2. Smartphone Imaging- Measurement of cancer tumor area (Pre-PDT & Post-PDT).
3. Development of Cancer treatment strategies using photodynamic therapy(PDT).
4. Sub-lethal PDT-dose response in Pancreatic cancer cells.
As a representative of India in an International Conference Organized in
Cape Town, South Africa.
Topic: Inter-Continental Advanced Materials and Photonics with the focus on
Geometry and topology in soft matter, Optics and biological systems.
1. DNA Mechanics and its applications to DNA Protein Interactions.
2. Design principles in Photosynthetic Light Harvesting.
3. Novel nanomaterial structure, growth electronic magnet & optical properties.
