PhD Students

Parul Mittal, PhD Student
I joined the lab in August 2014 as a Ph. D. Student. I completed my B.tech in Biotechnology from Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Noida in 2014. During my graduation, I was involved in Nanoemulsion formulation for Antimicrobial Phytochemicals. Currently, I am involved in Taxonomic and Functional Analysis of Metagenomic data from different biomes. I like reading and listening music.


Shubham Jaiswal, PhD Student
I joined the lab in Aug 2015, as a PhD student. I completed my BS-MS Dual Degree from Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Bhopal in June 2015. Previously, I worked in the field of experiemntal biology mainly in Biochemistry, structural biology and Biophysics. Currently I am mainly involved in the statistical modelling of the biological data for it's better management and analysis. Parallely I am also learning the NGS data collection and analysis methods. I love to travel and play online games.


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.


Kundan Kumar, PhD Student
I joined MetaBioSys laboratory as as Project Assistant in June 2016. Here, I am involved in molecular dyanamics simulation studies and computer aided drug designing. Before joining this laboratory, I have been working as Senior Research Fellow at NRCPB, New Delhi and as Research Assistant, at CIRBSc, Jamia Millia Islamia. My previous work experiances include transcriptome data analysis and structural and functional annotation of Hypothtical Protiens and modelling of gene regulator network. I completed M.Sc. in Bioinformatics from Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi. I love to play outdoor games, reading, listening soft music and travelling.


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.

BS-MS Students


Jatin Khaimani, BS-MS Student
I joined the MetaBioSis lab in May 2019 for my master thesis wherein I am investigating the healthcare genetic data. In the long run, I am looking forward for developing a tool to learn and represent it better. I have a predilection for working with a team, handling jobs and still remain in my calm while writing poems, storylines and songs. My past experiences include leading a team to participate in an International Synthetically Biology competition (iGEM'18), being part of reputed labs (Defense Research and Development Establishment, Raman Research Institute) and currently serving as a member of Entrepreneurship Cell at IISER Bhopal.


Somvanshi Tejas Kiran, BS-MS Student
I joined the MetaBioSys Lab in July 2019 for my final year MS thesis work. Having a keen interest in Synthetic and Systems Biology, I wanted to couple it with Computational exposure as well. Currently, I am involved in machine learning and tool development. In my spare time, I love to read books and am an avid DOTA 2 Player. Venturing outside, I am always down for a road trip.


Subhisha Raj, BS-MS Student
I joined the MetaBiosys lab in July 2019, for my final year MS thesis work. Here I got opportunity to work in Metagenomics and also to learn different techniques involved in the same. My interests include sketching, playing outdoor games and traveling.
