An early-stage researcher working on an interdisciplinary project, at the interface of cell biology and biophysics. My academic training includes a Master of Technology specializing in Biotechnology and Medical Engineering, from NIT-Rourkela, India and a Bachelor of Technology in Biotechnology from SRM University-Chennai, India. Currently, I am a 4th year PhD scholar working in collaboration with labs of Sandrine Etienne-Manneville at Institut Pasteur, Paris and Bruno Goud at Institut Curie, Paris. My PhD project “Isoforms of Cdc42: function, localization and regulation”, is funded by the Marie-Curie Horizon 2020 network Polarnet-ITN. My protein of interest Cdc42, is a small GTPase protein regulating cell polarization events. Interestingly, Cdc42’s C-terminal which differs for both it’s isoforms comprises of a CAAX box which enables it to anchor to membranes. My key objective is to understand the functions of these isoforms which is driven by their different CAAX box sequences.
