My Scientific activities

Recently I joined Institute the Jacques Monod, CNRS - Université Paris Cité as a postdoctoral scientist. Before this, I was a Ph.D. research scholar at the Department of Biosciences & Bioengineering, IIT Bombay.


Broadly speaking my current area of research is Mechanobiology, an emerging field of science at the interface of biology, physics, and engineering, which focuses on how physical force and mechanical factors influence cell behaviour, cell and tissue morphogenesis, and diseases related to these processes.

Cellular mechanobiology also includes studying the relationship between cell and its environment, including how the cell senses and responds to its environment and alterations in it, and how these processes apply to larger biological systems.


During my PhD research, I specialized in cancer mechanobiology, specifically focusing on the mechanisms of cancer invasion. I investigated various components, such as proteins and proteoglycans, which make up the mechanoresponsive elements of cancer cells. My goal was to understand how these components regulate cancer migration.


I am currently a CNRS researcher, focusing on studying how cells work together to form tissue. My research mainly involves investigating the intricate mechanisms that control tissue organization and function, using intestinal epithelia as a model. The ultimate goal is to significantly improve our understanding of healthy tissue and enhance our knowledge of diseases related to intestinal epithelia, such as cancer and rare intestinal diseases (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, Microvillus Inclusion Disease)
