I am an Assistant Member at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center affiliated with the Basic Sciences Division and with the Computational Biology Program. I am also an Affiliate Assistant Professor in the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington.

I am originally from Erode, a small town in Southern India. I received my bachelor's degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. I then switched to theoretical physics for my PhD, which I got at the University of Chicago working with Ilya Gruzberg on disorder-induced quantum phase transitions. At the end of my graduate school, I caught the systems biology bug, and decided to try my hand at wet-lab experiments. This led to a postdoc at the Center for Systems Biology in Harvard University, where I worked with Philippe Cluzel and Erin O'Shea on regulation of protein synthesis. Outside of science, I enjoy cooking, swing dancing, and biking.
