Research Profile

Section Affiliation: Infections and Immunity

Research Interest:

My research interest is on understanding the molecular mechanisms of virulence in bacterial pathogens in relation with quorum sensing, biofilm formation and antibiotic resistance. Moreover, I am focussing my research on host-bacterial pathogen interactions, host cellular immune response to bacterial infections and development of alternative non-antibiotic therapeutic options.

Keywords: Biofilm formation, Antibiotic resistance, Quorum sensing, small RNA Regulation of RNA-Mediated Regulation in Pathogenic Bacteria, Host immune response
