Personal profile

Research interests

I am an experienced researcher with 6.5 years of postdoctoral research experience, a PhD degree in Microbiology, and 12 years as a researcher in the academic/industrial sector. My primary research topics include bioprocessing of biopolymers (PHA & EPS), enhanced production of microbial value-added products (biopolymers, antibiotics, biofuel, polyamide), microbial fuel cells, and microbial EPS-based metal nanoparticles. The research works done during my PhD, and Postdocs have already been published in high impact International Journals, leading to 37 peer-reviewed publications (18 first-authored + 19 co-authored), 3 non-refereed journal publications, 1 newsletter, 1 book chapter, 6 patent contributions (4 granted, 2 pending), and 18 conference proceedings. and 2 more scientific papers are under revision in high-impact journals. The publication summary shows that the total impact factor is about 180 with 1427 citations, H-Index (23), and i10-index (31). I have been awarded some prestigious fellowships such as Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (UKRI postdoctoral guarantee program), Marie Curie COFUND CEA Enhanced Eurotalent fellowship (France), EMBO short-term fellowship (for Ireland), Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship (Switzerland), KU Brain-pool fellowship (South Korea), UGC project fellowship (India), and DBT studentship (India). My growing independence and potential for leadership are evidenced by four funded projects obtained from the UKRI, European Commission-COFUND, EMBO, and Swiss Confederation as a co-principal investigator, and currently, I have been an Ad-hoc peer reviewer for several international journals.
