PhD Students


Vishnu Prasoodanan, PhD Student
I joined in this lab in Dec. 2016 as a doctoral student. I completed my BS-MS Dual Degree from Department of Biological Sciences, IISER Bhopal. During my Masters research I have worked on reconstruction of bacterial and viral genomes from multiple metagenomes. Currently, I am working on Curation and analyses of NGS Metagenomic as well as metabolomic data from different environments (river, human gut and skin microbiome etc.). My hobbies are painting and digital art.


Shruti Mahajan, PhD Student
I joined the lab in December 2017. I have completed my B.Sc.(2015) and M.Sc.(2017) in Microbiology from Govt. Holkar Science College, Indore. Currently, I am working on Human gut microbiome. I like to do few paper and textile crafts like origami and macrame.


Abhisek Chakraborty , PhD Student
I joined MetaBioSys lab in August, 2018 as a Ph.D student, after completing M.Sc from Department of Zoology, University of Delhi. My area of interest is to understand the Genotype-Phenotype relationship through Genomics and Systemic approaches. Besides this, I am interested in metagenomic sample data analysis and machine learning approaches. I like watching sports and listening music in my free time.


Aditya Sanjay Malwe, PhD Student
I joined the lab in January 2019 as a PhD student after completing my MSc in Microbiology from The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda. My research experience is primarily in experimental microbiology having worked on Quorum Quenching Actinobacteria during my MSc. But here I am interested in combining experimental as well as computational approaches for metagenomic analysis. I play table tennis, i like to read and travel a lot.


Sudhir Kumar, PhD Student
I joined Metagenomics and Systems Biology Laboratory in August 2019 after my M.Sc. in Biotechnology from University of Allahabad. I have worked on Physiological and Biochemical effects of heavy metal stress on Cyanobacteria and molecular marker based genotyping. Here I will be involved in sequencing and analysis of Eukaryotic genomes. I am interested in wildlife conservation and ecology. I like reading and listening to songs.


Deepika Pateriya, PhD Student
I joined MetaBioSys lab in August 2020 as a PhD student after completing my M.Sc in Zoology (Majoring in Molecular and Human Genetics) from Banaras Hindu University. My previous work experience is primarily in experimental biology having worked with mouse and fly models. Currently, I am involved in understanding the human microbiome using computational and experimental appraoches. When I am not busy in lab, I enjoy playing Basketball, Volleyball, singing and writing poetry.


Manohar Singh Bisht, PhD Student
I joined the lab in August 2021 as a PhD student after completing my Master's from the Department of Botany, University of Delhi, where I explored sewage microbial community structure data. Currently, my area of research is to analyse metagenomic and genomic data by employing computational appraoches. Besides that, I love to read and explore new places.


Mitali Singh, PhD Student
Having an ardent appraoch to do research work that benefits the general public, in August of '21 I joined the MetaBioSys lab, where I'll be studying Human Skin microbiome. I did my bachelor's and master's in Zoology from Banaras Hindu University. During my Master's dissertation work, I studied Insect immunityand their Cancer therapeutic values. Besides my scientific interests, I consider myself as a versatile and creative person with an extramural passion for food, painting, photography and traveling to places never seen before.



BS-MS Students

Samuel Mondal, BS-MS Student
I formally joined the MetaBioSys lab in August 2021 but I've been working in the lab since 2018. I'm now working on improved genome assembly and annotation of a bird genome. I'm learning about new genomic tools on a regular basis and it is a great learning experience for me. In my free time, I like to play video games or read novels.
