A Bit About Me

As a researcher, I always enjoy learning new things. At IIT BHU, I am learning and exploring the ways to develop simpler methods and devices for sensing important biomarkers. My project is mainly focussing on the chronic kidney disease detection process as it is one of the most emerging diseases of 21 st century. During my at IIT Guwahati, I have learned and explored the method and microorganisms that can help in the degradation of plastic. I believe, "If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough".
