I earned my Ph.D. from the Department of Biochemistry, Sri Venkateswara University, India in December 2008. I have worked as a Postdoctoral research fellow at Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Uppsala, Sweden until 2013 on the effect of Cyanotoxins on Physiology of Cattle and monitoring of cyanotoxins in the Coastal Zone of the Baltic Sea. I have also worked on gene expression pathways of Fatty acid metabolism in high fat induced mice. I have joined Dr. Lee’s Lab in September 2015 as a postdoctoral research associate in the Environmental Health Sciences department of the College of Public Health. I am working on quantification of microcystin levels in fish from Lake Erie and fresh produce which was grown with water from Lake Erie and its region.
