Hello! I am a newly minted PhD, having recently completed my doctoral degree from the National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore, India. My research interests lie in exploring the evolutionary, genetic and developmental bases of ecological adaptations. My doctoral work was on the genetics and development of wing patterning in mimetic Papilio swallowtail butterflies. It comprised of an integrative approach to understanding how mimetic polymorphism has evolved and is maintained in the Papilio polytes. Through my work, I explored a wide range of biological phenomena that shaped wing patterning in mimetic butterflies, from gene networks to speciation events.
