I am a researcher at the Center for Applied Structural Discovery (CASD) of the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University. I perform large-scale atomistic simulation of respiratory complexes to understand the chemo-mechanical coupling underlying the conversion of chemical energy into mechanical energy. As a part of the Singharoy group , I have access to state-of-the-art high-performance computational facilities. This, combined with strong collaborations with experimental groups which include experts of X-ray and Cryo-EM microscopy, makes it a very exciting place to work at.

In the past, I have studied a pH-sensitive cell-penetrating peptide, pHLIP, for developing a novel cancer-targeting agent. This was a part of my PhD research at the Mertz group at West Virginia University. I have extensively used high-performance computing and GPU-supported MD for this work.

Apart from my research, I volunteer to teach workshops aimed at teaching scientific computing to students, researchers and faculties. Click here for more details.
I have been a guest blogger for Biophysical Society during annual meetings in 2015, 2016 and 2017. You can see my posts here.
